How do I add links in Canva?

There are many creative ways to use Canva to your advantage. You can create resumes, social media posts, cover photos, Instagram stories, graphics, logos, blog posts and many more designs. Along with the ability to create almost anything, Canva also has plenty of tools you can use to enhance your designs: text, colors, fonts, effects, images, comments, and links.

It is possible to add links to any element of your design, be it a word, an image or an animation. This feature lets you link your design to another website, where you can provide more information, advertise a product, direct customers to your social media platforms, and more. You can even add clickable links to saved PDFs you’ve created in Canva.

Automatic link updates

If your Canva project has a few pages, adding links to each page can be a tedious process. However, thanks to the latest Canva updates, some of your links may need to be updated manually. This feature applies to footer links and emails.

Footer links

In terms of footers, if you add a link to a footer on a page, all footers in your design will update. This way there is no need to manually insert a link in each footer.

E-mail

Another update introduced by Canva is the “mailto” feature. This refers to Canva designs where the footers include an email address. If someone were to click on the email address in your footer, they would be taken to their email address, where they can contact you.
