Once your audio file has been uploaded, you can add it to your design. To do this, select the element of your design that you want to add audio to, and then click on the “Audio” button on the left-hand side of the screen. A new panel will appear, showing your uploaded audio files. Select the audio file you want to add, and then drag it onto your design.


Step 4: Adjust the audio settings

After adding audio to your design, you can adjust the audio settings to suit your needs. Canva allows you to control the volume of the audio, set it to loop, and set it to play automatically. To access these settings, click on the audio element in your design, and then click on the “Audio” button on the left-hand side of the screen. From there, you can adjust the volume, loop, and autoplay settings.


Step 5: Publish and share your design

Once you have added audio to your design and adjusted the settings, you can publish and share it with your audience. Canva allows you to download your design in various formats, including JPG, PNG, and PDF.


You can also share your design directly on social media platforms or embed it on your website.
