Canva image blurry? Here's how to fix it!

Jan 21, 2020

Do your canva pictures ever get blurry? For example, when you create a Facebook Cover that has exactly the right dimensions? You download it, upload it to Facebook, and it is blurry? 

People might tell you that it is because of not using the right dimensions, but actually, it is NOT! I am not sure what causes it, but I do know how to fix it. I've recommended this method to so many people that I decided to make a blog post out of it haha.

So here we go, the MAGIC TRICK TO SOLVE THIS woohoo!! You need to follow these exact steps and the problem should be solved.

Here's what you do:

  • Create your picture in canva like you always do. Make sure to use the right size (although that size is usually not the reason of the problem). (I will add size info here later on)

  • Download your file as a pdf for print, as shown here:

  • Go to this website to turn the pdf into a jpg: (make sure to use THIS specific website and this website only. No idea why, but I tried another one and that did not do the trick). Click "drop pdf here" to upload your pdf.

  • On the next screen, make sure to choose "convert entire pages" and click on "choose option":

  • On the next page, click on the download button. If your image has multiple pages, it will download as a zip, which you need to unzip first.

  • Upload to Facebook (or the place where your picture came out blurry)

Tadaaaaaaa! Mystery solved. You can thank me with a virtual prosecco 😆.
