When is it Important To Remove a Background in Canva?

There is no doubt that images are a quick and efficient way to convey information. However, your chosen image and visuals directly affect how your audience receives this information. Remembering to have a focal point when employing an image can help grab the reader’s attention by preventing them from having too much in front of them. Your shot will probably have more effect if the crowded background is removed.

Also, you should convey a message with the background. Take a CV, for example. While you may think it is a good idea to have a shot of yourself and your puppy to show that you are a genuinely happy person, It might be good to choose a translucent background for your image in this situation, leaving the boundaries white and free of any intrusive elements.

If you seek a design or creative industry job, you might want some personality to shine through. In this case, you can leave the puppy or make yourself the focal point by making the background transparent and adding a captivating sunny yellow one. Whatever project you’re working on, having the power to adjust your photographs is crucial.

How To Remove Video Background in Canva 

Follow the steps below to remove the video background using Canva. 

Step 1 

Opening a fresh Canva design template is the first step to eliminating the background from a video in the online design tool. You should choose one of the preset layouts under the Video tab for this functionality to be usable.

Step 2 

The next action is to include a video file in your Canva design. You can use one of the many video templates in the left-hand menu or a video clip you submit to Canva. 

Step 3 

The Canva video editing toolbar needs to be enabled next. By now, you must have chosen a video template. However, Canva still needs to know which part of the template you are trying to change. In your Canva design template, therefore, click the video element. The upper toolbar will display an Edit Video button if you select the video element successfully. This menu choice won’t appear if you click on any other design element.

Step 4

In the menu on the left side of your screen, after selecting the Edit Video option, is the Canva Video Background Remover. The background of your video will be eliminated by just clicking on this Background Remover button. A few seconds will pass while the modifications are processed because video files are larger than image files. 

Step 5

Press the play button in the middle of your new video to check if your video’s background was erased.
