Introducing Canva’s Game-Changing Features for 2023
We’re super excited to tell you about Canva’s 10 amazing new design tools and extra features that work seamlessly with both new and existing tools. We highly recommend streaming the announcement on YouTube to get the full scoop since it was an incredible show. The new AI-powered tools are nothing short of revolutionary, and as we’ve seen in Q1 of 2023; it is going to be everywhere this year.
Magic Design: Our New Design Companion
With Canva Magic Design, we can kiss time-consuming template searches goodbye. Simply drag in an image or video, and Magic Design will find a template that matches the style, giving us eight options to choose from.
Magic Presentation: Stress-Free Presentations
Magic Presentations take the hassle out of making our presentations look good. While it can even provide content for us, we suggest using it as inspiration instead of relying solely on AI-generated work. Just type a prompt, and Magic Presentation will create a polished design that looks and sounds great.
Styles and Layouts: Perfecting Our Designs
If we’re struggling to get a design just right, Styles and Layouts are here to help. This feature rearranges our designs to fit, look, or feel better without adding content. It offers options to elevate our work to new heights.
Draw: Sketching on Canva’s Whiteboard
Now we can draw directly onto Canva’s Whiteboard, just like a real one. Choose from four pen types, infinite colours, and various weight options to sketch our ideas. Leave them hand-drawn or use Shape Assist to transform doodles into clean shapes, lines, or arrows. In the future, Canva plans to use AI to match graphics to our sketches.
Magic Write: Expressing the Inexpressible
Magic Write helps us put into words what we’ve never been able to before. Available in 21 languages and across the entire Canva Suite, it’s perfect for writing anything from love poems to professional texts. If we’re confident in our words but struggle with grammar or typos, Magic Write can clean up and summarize our texts too.
Translate: Designs for a Multilingual World
With Canva’s Translate tool, we can create designs in over 100 languages. Simply write our text and choose the target language from a dropdown menu. No need to hire a translator – we’ve got the world at our fingertips.
Text to Image Upgrades: Next-Level Imagery
Text-to-image, a popular AI method to create images from simple word prompts, has received upgrades: higher resolution, faster generation speed, and new styles. If we’re curious about AI-generated imagery rights, we can read up on copyright rules around AI art.
Magic Edit: Perfecting Our Images
Magic Edit helps us achieve the perfect image. If we want to change roses to tulips or swap out a beard for a floral design, Magic Edit delivers great results. Use the Magic Eraser to remove unwanted areas, type a prompt for the replacement, and Canva will fill in the gaps with multiple options.
Create an Animation: Bringing Our Designs to Life
While Canva has always had an Animate feature, it now boasts an Animation feature as well. We can set any element to move along a drawn path, change speeds and smoothness, and even make a dog photo move in circles or planets revolve around the Pope. We’re in control of our animations.
Beat Sync: Music and Video Harmony
As short-form videos gain popularity, syncing music to beats becomes essential for engagement. Canva’s new Beat Sync tool makes it easy for us to let images transition or move with the track in one click, saving us time compared to After Effects.
