What is an Embed?
An embed is a plugin that’s accessed by clicking the Source button under the video player. It makes it easy for you to import and edit any video, photo, audio, infographic, SoundCloud tracks, Youtube video, etc. into a blog post or webpage with a live editing window.
For example, you can edit the content in Canvas just like how you would do in Photoshop, but it’s right there on your blog post!
Embeds are super handy for bloggers because they allow readers to interact with graphics and photos even before clicking them out of their original context. Plus if you’re using WordPress then embeds automatically update across all devices as soon as edits are made so that it matches the original look of the design.
What are the benefits of an Embed?
When it comes to using design templates for posts, bloggers have been struggling with copyright policies. With our new Embed feature, you can now give people permission to share and use your design as they please.
When readers are looking at a post that was designed in Canva, they’ll see an option that says View Original. Clicking on this will bring them back to the Designer Tool where they can continue editing the same file if they so choose.
Best times to use an Embed
*When you want to show off a new design without having to break the blog post flow. *If you’re unable *to add content using an embed, then it’s better not to do so at all.
*If you have a gallery and want each item in the gallery embedded automatically into your posts*
It’s easy! All you need is a simple HTML code. It goes like this: You copy the HTML code from the image in Canva, paste it where you want to put your image on your blog post or website, and voila! Your design is now embedded!
Best practices for using an Embed
-Be sure that the size of the image you’re embedding is larger than what’s needed. The design may need to be scaled down after you copy and paste it, so make sure it’s big enough in Canva.
-If you have a design that includes text, try breaking up all of the text into shapes so that when you export it and try scaling it down, the text won’t become illegible. This also works for logos with words and line drawings.
-Avoid linking out from your post because this will stop posts from automatically updating with new changes in Canvas, which could mean outdated graphics appear on an older blog post without warning.
How do I make an Embed?
- Go to the Canva design that you want to embed in a blog post or web page.
- Click the Share button and select Copy Image URL.
- Paste the image URL into a new post, blog, email, or document of your choice!

In a nutshell, you’ll want to copy the URL of the image in Canva and paste it into a blog post. To do this in WordPress, you’ll want to find an appropriate text block for pasting images. In Drupal, there is no need for that because of the use of blocks throughout the system. There are plenty of other ways to achieve this goal with other CMSs and tools!
