Can I use my own photos on Canva for iPad?

When you use our iPad app, you have access to our vast image library and your uploaded images. In addition, you can also use the photos taken using your iPad’s camera for your designs.

Here’s how:

01. Select the Uploads tab

First, select the Uploads tab to show uploaded albums, then tap "photos"

02. Allow access

The Canva app will ask you to allow access to your iPad photos. Tap "OK" so Canva can import your iPad photos. 

03. Choose a photo

Whenever you take new photos with your iPad they will be added directly to the photos album. Now, all photos on your iPad camera roll will be available to drag and drop onto your designs, just like any other element. 

 

 

Note: You may only access your iPad photo album if you are designing using the iPad app — for now, it is inaccessible on the desktop version of Canva unless you upload them on your desktop.
