Please note that while stories and reels have the same dimensions (1080 x 1920 px), the safe zones are different. Ensure you are using the correct template for your design.

  1. Create your design in your design in your preferred image editing tool. For the purposes of this tutorial, we will be using Canva.
  2. Once you're happy with your design, upload the safe zone template to your tool. In Canva, this can be achieved via Uploads > Upload files
  3. Once uploaded, drag and drop the template over your design and adjust the size to match your design. If you are using Photoshop or a similar editing software, we recommend importing this file into a new layer for ease of use.

  4. Ensure all text and CTA elements in your design are fully visible and legible with the safe zone template in place. Please note that it's okay that images/logos are partially hidden behind the template - these will look fine on the ad. The primary issue we are addressing here is to ensure any text is legible and free of interference.
  5. Adjust your overlapping design elements accordingly. Once you're happy everything is legible, delete the safe zone template or layer from your design and proceed as normal.
