Connect the Canva integration to access Canva's editor without leaving Seguno.

Updated over a week ago

Canva is a robust graphic design platform with a wide range of prebuilt templates and layouts and advanced customization tools. Content created in Canva can be imported directly to your Seguno image library using the Canva integration.

Connect Canva

Through Seguno's Canva integration, you can create images in Canva's editor without leaving Seguno and import them directly into your Seguno image library for use in your emails.

Using the Canva integration requires having a Canva account. If you still need to create an account, you can create one directly through the integration.

To connect Canva to Seguno:

  1. Navigate to the Dashboard, then Connections.

  2. Select Canva.

  3. Click Connect.

Warning: Using the Canva integration requires having a Canva account. Accounts are available for free, with some premium content available at an additional cost. If you have not already created an account, you can create one directly through the integration.

Creating Canva images in Seguno

The Canva integration allows you to access Canva's editor and templates within Seguno. This means that you are able to create new designs when creating an email. The Canva integration is available for any image-based section in the Seguno editor.

To design an image with Canva:

  1. Open the Editor.

  2. Add any image-based section (Flipbook, Gallery, Image, Image with text, or Image with text overlay).

  3. Select the section.

  4. Click Design with Canva.

  5. Select a canvas.

  6. Click Create design.

  7. Create the design in Canva.

  8. Click Publish.

  9. Once published, add an image description and update the link for the Canva image.

Tip: There is a lot of flexibility for creating different-sized images in Canva. Images in the body of your email will have a maximum width of 600px and, as a best practice for sharp images on high-resolution devices, use images that are roughly 1000 - 1200px wide.

To edit a Canva image:

  1. Open the Editor.

  2. Select the section that contains the Canva image.

  3. Click Edit.

  4. Update the design.

  5. Click Publish.

Once an image has been published, it will be saved to your Seguno images library and marked with the Canva logo. This icon indicates that you can select the design and edit it in Canva. After publishing an update, the previous design will no longer be editable, which means the Canva logo will no longer appear on its thumbnail in the Image Library. However, the original image is still available for use, as all published images will be saved in your Library.

  • Can I import previously created Canva designs into Seguno?

    • Designs created in Canva can be exported and then imported to Seguno manually, without the use of the Canva integration.

  • Can I import animated images from Canva to Seguno?

    • Animated images are not able to be imported to Seguno through the integration. If you'd like to bring an animated image into Seguno, export it as a GIF directly from and then import it into Seguno as you normally would.

  • Can my team access the Canva designs I created in Seguno?

    • If you have multiple contributors working on your Canva designs, editing permission will initially be limited to the users who created the content. Designs can be shared by updating permissions. Learn more from Canva. You may be able to request access or the team sharing options of Canva Pro may be worth it for you.
