Here’s how all paid plan users can start scheduling Canva designs right from the composer

You’ll never have to worry about the social media image sizes and dimensions ever again because in Canva you can choose the desired aspect ratio.

There’s no need for a paid plan on Publer to use Canva.

Remember: Users on the Free plan can still use and schedule Canva designs on Publer. But, they need to start using the designs by clicking the ‘View in Publer’ on their Canva profile as soon as they save the illustration on Canva. Otherwise, they won’t be saved on Publer, as every free plan user needs to upgrade their account, first.

Free plan users can start scheduling posts only if they save their Canva design and click View in Publer

Here’s what makes Canva everyone’s favorite online tool:

1. It provides thousands of templates – all customizable with professional graphics, fonts, stock images, etc.

2. It also provides a Free plan – all you need is an account and inspiration!

3. No need to be a designer – Canva has drag & drop options and intuitive workflow for you to make art.

4. You can personalize the whole illustration – Grab your logo, add the curated text, and save the illustration. 

We’ve been using Canva Pro since we can’t remember. Whether we wanted to create special Pins, Instagram posts/stories, blog banners, etc.


It’s designing tools are also amazing. Personalizing the visual content has never felt easier and smoother.
