How to Make Animated Instagram Reels in Canva

Canva

  1. Sarah says:

    This is so helpful! I heard that Instagram recently decided to focus more on reels than on static posts, so this came at a perfect time.

    • Josephine Franzén says:

      It is for sure. I personally don’t like creating videos but I love doing it like this in Canva

  2. Rose says:

    Thanks for sharing your design skills. I love Canva.

    • Josephine Franzén says:

      You’re so welcome! I love canva too and it makes it so much easier creating your graphics in there when you don’t need any expensive programs.

  3. Jeffie Ren says:

    Thank you for this! i always avoid video because I feel like I need to be on camera in order to do it so this was a breath of fresh air!

    your blog is gorgeous btw!

    • Josephine Franzén says:

      Yes, so many with you feel the same. That’s why this is a great way to still be able to create video content.

      Thank you so much for your sweet words!

  4. Shea says:

    Love this! I’m going to implement this from now on. I try to do one reel a week but sometimes my creativity fails me. This helps!

  5. Deanna says:

    Canva is just the best. I am starting to make IG reels because it really helps my reach. Thank you for this helpful blog post.

  6. I personally like the idea that now Instagram is focusing on video and photos is cool. I have to start making more videos to promote my blog on Instagram.

    • Josephine Franzén says:

      Then this is a perfect way to go. Promoting your blog posts with animated reels is amazing!

  7. Mae says:

    thanks this was very helpful!

  8. Derah says:

    Thank you for the tips. I love and use Canva and I’m always looking for ways to improve.
