How Do I Change My Thumbnail on Canva?

If you’re a Canva user, you may have noticed that the thumbnail of your designs are automatically generated when you save them. This can be a bit inconvenient if you want to have a specific image as your thumbnail.

Fortunately, Canva makes it easy to change the thumbnail of your design.

Step 1: Open the Canva editor and select the design you want to change the thumbnail for. Step 2: Click on the “Settings” button in the top-right corner of the page. Step 3: Select “Change Thumbnail” from the drop-down menu.

Step 4: You will be presented with two options – either upload an image from your computer or select one from Canva’s library of stock images. Step 5: Upload or select an image and click on “Save”.

You should now see that your design has been updated with a new thumbnail.


Changing thumbnails in Canva is a quick and easy process. By following these five steps, you can easily update the thumbnail of any design in just a few minutes.
