How do I download a design to my computer?

There are many ways to post and share your design online, but you can also download and save a copy to your computer. Here’s how:

Click the download button

Once your design is complete and ready to download, click the download button on the upper right-hand corner of the screen. This will reveal the download menu. 

Download as an image or PDF

From the download menu you’ll have the choice of three different file types to publish and download your design. Click on either the PNG download button, JPEG download button or the PDF download button, and Canva will begin to publish your design. 

Pay for premium elements

If your design uses any premium elements, you’ll be asked to pay for them. If you have any pre-purchased credits remaining, click the pay & download button to spend them. Otherwise, enter your credit card information to pay for the elements in your design and click the make payment button

Design will automatically download

Your file will automatically begin downloading. Depending on your browser’s preferences, you’ll either be prompted to select a download location, or the file will automatically be saved to your downloads folder.


Did you catch a mistake or need to make any changes? You can continue to edit and download your design without paying again for premium elements for 24 hours after your initial download.
