How to make a Twitter cover using Canva

Hello and welcome to another tutorial from the Clickvoyagers.

Today I will show you how to make a Twitter header using Canva’s preset designs but also using your own image.

Let’s start by using Canva’s presets.

Go to www.Canva.com and click on Twitter header:

If you can’t locate the above option from the start page of Canva use the search function:

You will then be forwarded to this screen where you have a selection of headers on the left and your empty canvas on the right.

Select an image from the left column and it will appear on your Canva.

Then you can edit the text by selecting it and writing the title of your choice.

Additionally, you have some text editing options on the top, where you can change the font, the size, make the text bold, etc.

Then you are ready. Now if you click on Download on the top right corner you will able to download your Twitter header and upload it on Twitter.

It is that easy!

If you want to use your own image you can do so by following these steps.

Select the twitter header option like previously.

Upload your own image by going to the Upload tab on the left side menu:

That is a very old picture of me 🙂

Then you can add your own text by clicking on the Text tab on the left menu:

This is what I made (I love coffee so it makes sense):

and if you want a good source for free stock images I recommend pexels.com. I’m not affiliated with them but I use this website a lot and I think it’s a great database of nice free stock images. Highly recommended.

I have also written another tutorial on how to use Canva to make a Facebook cover.
