Canva has a range of visual design options, from Instagram layouts to infographics. But one thing Canva is especially useful for is creating presentations for work. There are a number of different layouts one can choose from to design the perfect presentation. P.S. This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure for more information.
You can find the Presentations section at the top:
There are a few different options. Here’s what they all do.
With this option, you can record a video of yourself explaining the different slides. Start by building the presentation and the slides first, and then click “present and record.” Canva will then allow you to record a video of yourself explaining each slide. You can download the video once you’re done or share it as a link. You can see me here bottom left:
This one is pretty self-explanatory. Canva will give you an array of mobile-friendly layout options to choose from with this format. And by mobile I mean 9×16 or a vertical format:
“Presentation” and “Presentation (4:3)” are both traditional presentations, with one sizing at 16×9 and the other at 4×3:
The “Brainstorm Presentation” option gives you layouts that are designed for brainstorm sessions. You’ll find slides like this that allow you to copy/paste and edit sticky notes and reactions:
Again, you’ll have a nice variety of choices on Canva no matter which presentation style you choose!
