Wrapping Up

Congratulations on learning how to circle crop in Canva!

While using a circle frame to achieve the circle crop works, you lack the flexibility to use it like you want. Hence, if you’re not happy, we suggest you check online circle crop tools or use free photo editors like MS Paint and GIMP.
