Our image library is full of elements that you can use in your designs! However, you can also upload your own photos or files to give your designs a personal touch. Here’s how:
Click the uploads tab
Click the uploads tab on the far left side of the screen, then press the green button called Upload your own images.
Select a file to upload
Canva will then ask you to locate a file to upload. Choose a file that is one of our supported file types, and click "open."
Use the photo
Your uploaded file should now appear as an element in the upload pane. Not only is this element available in your current design, but you can use it with any design on your Canva account.
Drag and drop the photo into your design
To place your newly uploaded element, either click it in the upload pane, or click and drag it into your design.
