How Do I Add a Palette in Canva?

Adding a palette to your Canva design is a great way to ensure that all the elements of your design have a unified look. With the help of Canva’s color palette editor, you can easily create and save custom palettes that you can use in any of your designs. Here’s how you can add a palette in Canva:

Step 1: Log in to your Canva account and open the design you wish to edit.

Once you’ve chosen the design, click on the “Edit Colors” button located at the top right corner of your screen.

Step 2: Choose from one of Canva’s color palettes.

Canva provides an extensive range of palettes for every type of project, from corporate designs to creative projects. If you don’t see one that appeals to you, then click on “Create Palette” at the bottom left corner.

Step 3: Create Your Own Palette

The “Create Palette” feature allows users to create custom palettes from scratch by selecting individual colors from their library or uploading images. To create a custom palette, simply select up to five colors and drag them into the palette window.

Step 4: Name Your Palette

To give your palette an identity, give it a name and save it for future use by clicking on the “Save Palette” button.


Adding a palette in Canva is an easy process that adds visual consistency and cohesiveness to any project. With just four steps – logging in, choosing from existing palettes, creating your own palette, and naming it – you can quickly add a custom color scheme that will perfectly fit your project.
