How Do You Get Stock Photos in Canva?

Stock photos are a great way to spice up your Canva designs. With high-quality, professional images, you can make your design look polished and professional.

But how do you get stock photos in Canva? In this article, we’ll show you how to easily find and add the perfect stock photo to your design.

Searching for Stock Photos
Canva has a library of millions of free and premium stock photos from Unsplash, Pexels, Pixabay, and other sources. To find the perfect photo for your design, click on the photo icon at the top of your Canva workspace.

This will bring up a search bar where you can type in keywords related to what you’re looking for. You can also use filters to narrow down the results by type (photo or illustration), color, or orientation (horizontal or vertical).

Purchasing Premium Photos
If you’re looking for more specific or higher quality images, you can purchase premium stock photos from Canva’s library of over 1 million images. The cost of each image varies depending on which package you choose — Standard ($1 USD), Pro ($10 USD) or Unlimited ($20 USD). Once purchased, these images are yours to keep and use as many times as you like on any Canva design project.

Adding Stock Photos to Your Design

Once you’ve found a stock photo that fits your design needs, simply click on it to add it to your canvas. You can then adjust its size and position as needed.

If you need to edit the photo further (e.g., adding text or effects), click on the “Edit” button at the top right corner of the image and make changes as desired. Once done editing, save your work and share it with others!


Finding and adding stock photos to Canva is easy! With millions of free and premium images available for purchase in their library, there’s sure to be something that fits perfectly into your next project. Give it a try today – you won’t regret it!
