Create Instant Designs with the New Canva ChatGPT Plugin

ChatGPT is building a huge library of highly functional plugins and recently, Open AI has completed the partnership with Canva. Since Canva is popular for its thousands of templates, icons and design use cases, this partnership is bringing in a plugin that can allow you to create instant designs with a single prompt. 

In this post, we’ll look into how this plugin works and how you can access it for your content creation needs.

How Does the Canva ChatGPT Plugin Work?

When you install the Canva plugin, you can produce IG posts, Twitter posts, videos, graphic posters, flyers and so much more from a prompt. 

It works pretty much the same way you generate text on ChatGPT, once you enter the prompt, you get results you can download right away. If it’s not what you love, you can choose to tweak the results until you get something more suitable to your preferences. 

We especially love that you don’t need a Canva account to be able to make these edits. Plus, you can customize both images and videos.

Now this isn’t a replacement for professional design services yet. However, it’s a great option if you’re looking to create quick and simple designs urgently. This is why the use case emphasized is primarily creating social media posts.

Who Can Access this Feature?

Anyone with an Open AI account should be able to add Canva’s new plugin to their ChatGPT account. Unfortunately, only users on the GPT-4 model can access the Canva Plugin. So if you’re still on the GPT-3.5, it means, you’d need to upgrade to Plus for $20.

However, this subscription isn’t a standalone one. In addition to being able to access plugins like Canva, you get a more updated language model and more advanced capabilities of the GPT-4.
