Great graphic design is the secret super power behind many content creators. However, for many content creators, graphic design is either too time consuming to tackle or too expensive when outsourced to professional designers. Luckily, Canvahas made creating your own custom designs much easier. In this tutorial, our team of design experts will cover how to add a dashed outline in Canva.
How to Add a Dashed Outline in Canva
1. Select Image of Your Choice
Select the picture of your choice and remove the background. If you are a pro user, you can do it in Canva itself, but if you are not, you can always use the remove.bg (a free tool).
2. Navigate to Lines and Shapes Under The Elements Section
Now go to the ‘Elements’ section and go with the Lines and Shapes option. You will see the dashed lines as well! (which we will use for this design).
3. Adjust the Weight of Dotted Line
You can adjust the size and the width of dots as you want. I suggest making it wider and smaller until you can just see a single dot.
4. Copy and Paste Dot Around Your Image’s Border
Copy and paste the dot around your picture border. It will look like you have dashed the border of your picture.
