Canva AI Writes Text and Makes Images For You

03:43 PM March 10, 2023

Companies try to adapt to artificial intelligence by mimicking ChatGPT or DALL-E. Canva decided to adopt both with its new AI features.

The graphic design platform launched an AI text generator to help users create titles, headings, and descriptions for projects.

Moreover, all Canva users have access to the new text-to-image tool, allowing them to create unique visuals for presentations and other stuff.


How does Magic Write work?


Let us start our discussion of Canva AI tools with Magic Write, the graphic design platform’s new text generator powered by OpenAI.

Try it yourself by creating a new design or opening an existing one on your Canva account. If you don’t have one yet, make one.


Click the Add magic button represented by a “+” icon. Alternatively, you may type a slash “/” to open the Magic menu.

Then, select Magic Write from the list, describe the text you want to generate and press your keyboard’s Enter key.

Similar to ChatGPT, the Canva AI text generator can produce various written media like short descriptions, poems, and blogs.

Canva says it can help you “unblock your writer’s block.” For example, let us say you want a witty greeting for your friend’s birthday card.

Enter “witty greeting for a birthday card,” and the tool will generate a creative message for your friend’s special day. 

Also, it can help you brainstorm ideas for your project. For instance, you can ask Magic Write to suggest topics for your blog.

Magic Write works on PC and mobile devices, so you can use it anytime and anywhere. Even better, free users can make 25 queries to this Canva AI tool.

Meanwhile, Pro, Teams, or NFP subscribers can generate up to 75 queries monthly. 

It’s in Open Beta at the time of writing, so the only available languages are English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Indonesian.

How does Canva Text-to-Image work?

OpenAI has another AI tool called DALL-E that creates images from text descriptions. Nowadays, Canva incorporated that technology for users. 

If you want unique visuals for your slideshow presentation or other projects, you could spend hours sifting through free stock photos.  

You could make them yourself, but that may require more time and skill. Fortunately, Canva AI can give you results within seconds.

It gives you images based on short descriptions, such as “a panda riding a bike through a city with a depth of field.” Also, you can get better results by providing more details. 

This Canva AI tool is available for all users, but they may only create 100 images daily. More importantly, the company posted a reminder about AI copyright.

It says it “doesn’t make any copyright claims over the images you create with text-to-image.” Moreover, your ownership of AI-generated images follows Canva Terms. 

That means Canva can use the image you create for marketing purposes. Furthermore, you must ask permission from brands if you want to use their recognizable characters.

Try Text-to-Image by clicking the Apps option on the left. Then, click on the Text to Image option after the Create something new tab.

Enter a description of the image you want, then choose a style and aspect ratio. Next, click on the Generate Image button. Add it to your design by clicking on your image.


Canva just got better with the power of artificial intelligence. Its AI tools allow you to create text and images from a few keywords.
