How To Invert Colors In Canva (All Possible Methods)
Canva does not have a direct feature for Inverting the colors of an image.
However, by following the methods below you will be able to invert the colors of an image to a certain extent.
1. Use Tint Adjustment
Open or create a new design from the Canva homepage.
After opening your design in the Canva editor, click on the image whose colors you want to invert.
After selecting the image, click on the ‘Edit Photo’ button from the top toolbar. An editing panel will open on the left-hand side, click on the ‘Adjust’ button to open new adjustments.
From the adjustment menu, drag the ‘Tint’ slider from left to right depending on what color you want to add to your image.
For example, I want my image to have a ‘Purple’ tint. So, I will drag the ‘Tint’ slider towards the right-hand side.
Now under the ‘Color’ subheading, drag the ‘Saturation’ slider left or right to decrease or increase the saturation of the image in front of you.
2. Apply Duotone Effect
You can also give your image a colorful look by applying the Duotone effect.
Click on the image and then on the ‘Edit Photo’ button from the top toolbar. From the editing panel on the left-hand side, click on the ‘Duotone’ effect button under the ‘Fx Effects’ section.
From the new menu, click on the thumbnail of the color that you want to apply to your image.
For example, I want to make my image blue in color. So, I will click on the ‘Sea Blue’ thumbnail.
Now you will notice three adjustment options below the selected color on the left-hand side.
You can drag the ‘Intensity’ slider towards the left-hand side to decrease the opacity of the color on the image.
To adjust the highlights of the image, click on the ‘Highlights’ button and then drag the slider over the color of your liking. You can also enter the ‘Hex Code’ of your desired color.
3. Apply Color Pop Filters
The easiest method for changing the color of an image is to apply color pop filters.
Click on the image and then on the ‘Edit Photo’ button from the top toolbar. Now from the editing panel, click the ‘See All’ button under the ‘Filters’ section.
Now all the Canva filters will open in front of you. Scroll through the filter menu to look for the ‘Color Pop’ section.
Under the ‘Color Pop’ section, click on any filter you like the most.
For example, I will click on the ‘Heatwave’ filter for demonstration purposes.
After selecting a color pop filter, an ‘Intensity’ slider will appear at the bottom of the selected filter.
Now you can use the ‘Intensity’ slider to adjust the opacity of the filter as mentioned above.
4. Apply Color Mix
You can also use Color Mix to change the hues of the selected image. But to get access to that feature, we have to revert back to the old editor.
Click on the image and then on the ‘Edit Photo’ button from the top toolbar. Now click on the ‘Click Here’ button from the end of the editing panel.
Canva will ask your permission to revert back to the old editor, so click on the ‘Revert To The Old Editor’ button.
Then your screen will load for a few seconds before getting back to normal.
Again, click on the image and then on the ‘Edit Photo’ button from the top toolbar. But this time the old editor will open in the editing panel.
Under the ‘You May Also Like’ section, click on the ‘Color Mix’ button. Canva will now ask for your permission to open the ‘Color Mix’ menu, click on the ‘Open’ button.
From the ‘Color Mix’ menu, click on an effect that you like the most to change the tone of the selected image.
To customize it further, click on the selected effect again to open controls.
Then you can drag the slider of the ‘Amount’ or ‘Offset’ controllers to customize the image further.
Lastly, click on the ‘Apply’ button at the end to apply all the changes to the picture.
