How to add and edit video

Canva has a fantastic video library. Usually, you can find something to suit your needs, but you can also upload and edit a video as well as remove the backgrounds of a video. However, this is a PRO feature, though it’s worth mentioning here.

To upload a video into Canva, head on over to a blank or existing template and click on the upload tab on the left. This will allow you to upload images and videos directly from your computer. Once you have a video in the upload section, click on it; it will be placed into your template. From here, you can edit it using the options from the top bar:
