How Do I Upload a Picture to Canva?

Do you want to make your designs look more professional and creative? Canva is a great tool to help you with that.

It is a web-based design platform, which enables users to create stunning graphics and presentations with its easy-to-use tools. But before you can use Canva, you need to know how to upload an image onto the platform.

Step 1: Visit the Canva website and sign up for an account. Once you have created an account, log in and select the ‘Create a Design’ option. This will open up Canva’s design editor, where you can start customizing your design.

Step 2: Choose the type of image or design that you want to upload. You can choose from images, illustrations, or even logos if you have one saved on your computer. Select the type of image that you would like to upload and proceed to the next step.

Step 3: Click on the ‘Uploads’ tab located at the top of the page. This will open up a window where you can drag and drop files from your computer into Canva’s library of images. Alternatively, if you have an image saved online, simply paste its URL into the ‘Search for Images’ box located at the bottom of this window.

Step 4: Select your desired image from Canva’s library or paste its URL into the ‘Search for Images’ box and click on ‘Search’. The image will then be imported into your project automatically. You can then edit it as desired by adding text, shapes, and other elements available in Canva’s editor.

Step 5: When finished editing your project, click on ‘Save’ at the top right corner of the screen to save it as a .jpg file or .pdf file (recommended). Your project is now ready for sharing with others or printing out!


Uploading images onto Canva is a simple process that anyone can do with ease. All you need to do is visit their website, sign up for an account if necessary, select your desired file type (images/illustrations/logos), drag/drop or paste its URL into Canva’s library of images, edit it as desired using their tools and save it when finished!
