How to Create a Puzzle Feed-in Canva

Note: Before creating your design you will need to enter the correct image dimensions in Canva. {alertInfo}

Go to Create Design Option and enter the size – 3240 x 3240. Usually, the size – 1080 x 1080 is recommended for any Instagram feed post. But here, we will convert a single picture into the puzzle piece form, and these pieces will be posted as individual posts on the feed. So we have to use the size of 3 positions for one picture.

1. Add 3 x 3 Grid to Design

Go to the 'Elements' menu from the left sidebar and search for the grids. Look for a 3 x 3 Grid from the result and select it.

2. Add Dotted Line Element to Border

This grid element will help us to define the outline of the puzzle. So all we need to do is use a dotted line element to trace the border of the grid we have selected.

3. Add Brand Images to Each Square

This will give us a raw look at our puzzling picture. Now you need to show your creativity by putting different images of your brand and fitting them in the form of a Grid so that doing it can look like a single picture.

4. Split Puzzle Using Pine Tools

Now, your puzzle is ready, but it's still in one piece. So we need to split it up. So first, you need to download your picture and use a tool called Pine Tools.

All you need to do is open the tool and upload your picture using the Split option. Please make sure that you have set the Split by blocks – 3. So you will have 3 x 3 individual images out of one picture. Go to the 'Elements' menu from the left sidebar and search for the grids. Look for a 3 x 3 Grid from the result and select it.

Finished Product

Make sure you start from the last square when uploading the photos on Instagram. The most important figure is the name of this picture file.
