Canva has three design types to get the most out of Facebook. You can create a perfectly sized Facebook cover photo, Facebook post, or even a Facebook ad, and each comes with plenty of layouts you can try.
Here’s how to upload each design after creating one:

After downloading the design, log in to your Facebook account. Click the add cover photo button, then choose “Upload Photo…”
Choose the downloaded image from your computer, then click the save changes button.
After creating your Facebook post design, click the download button located in the top right-hand corner of the screen. Download your design as a PNG and save the file to your computer.
After you successfully downloaded your design, go to your Facebook profile. Click the Photo/Video button to upload your image.

After creating your Facebook ad design, click the download button located in the top right-hand corner of the screen. Download your design as a PNG and save the file to your computer.
After downloading your Facebook Ad design, log in to Facebook and open the Create Ads page. Fill in your details and scroll down to the Create your Ad section.
Click the + button to upload your design. Choose the ad you just created and press open. Your design will then be added to the page.

My design looks blurry when uploaded to Facebook
Your design looks perfect when downloaded but when you tried to share and upload it on Facebook the images, text or logos are all fuzzy. The reason for this is because Facebook compresses uploaded images to save space.
To resolve this, increase the height and width of your design (no. of pixels) by 2x. Please do note that this feature is only available for Canva for Work. Also,try to upload files smaller than 100kb. Lastly, download your design as PDF and then convert to image file.
