Head to Canva and select ‘Instagram Post’ [1080 x 1080 px]
Select ‘Elements’ and go to ‘Line & Shapes’ then pick the circle.
A lovely round circle should now appear on your design. Drag it out to make it a little bigger, and then change it to the colour you’d like your background to be.
Now go back to ‘Elements’ and scroll down until you get to ‘Frames’ then select the circle frame.
A lovely circle with a Teletubbies style graphic on top should now appear on your design. Drag this out so it is the same size as your background coloured circle.
Upload the image you’d like your profile picture to be, and drag it on top of that Teletubbies grass and sky graphic.
Tap ‘Edit image’ and then select ‘Background Remover’ [you need Canva Pro for this handy feature!]
Voila, the background has gone. Now select ‘Crop to’ take up more of the circle.
Finally, download it and now it’s yours to show off that lovely face of yours across your social media profiles!
Well go awn then … get around making your new and improved profile pic[s].
