Purchase premium stock photos

Search for that perfect high quality photo you need in just seconds! Canva offers affordable premium stock images that you can readily download. Simply enter your keywords or find inspiration by browsing all our different categories.

Browse through at https://www.canva.com/photos/ and choose from our collection of beautiful well-curated photos, and bring uniqueness and originality to your Canva designs.


Once you’ve found the perfect stock photo suited to your needs, here’s how to purchase and download it:

  1. Click on the photo you wish to purchase.
  2. Click on Purchase this photo. Make sure you are logged into your Canva account before clicking on this. If you are not logged it, you will be redirected to the login page.
  3. The purchase prompt will appear showing the total cost, your existing Canva credits and special payment offers.
  4. Select which payment offer you’d like to avail. If your account doesn’t have a credit card associated to it, input your card details.
  5. Click on Purchase and Download.
  6. If successful, your stock photo will automatically download to your computer’s designated Downloads folder.


note: Premium stock photos from the Photos page can only be purchased under the Multi-use license. If you wish to purchase a premium stock photo under the One-time use or Extended license, you may refer to our article about Purchasing premium elements.

Using purchased stock photos

Under the Multi-use license, you can use purchased stock photos in any of your Canva designs with no time limit. You can find your purchased stock photos under the Purchased folder in the Uploads.

To access the Purchased folder:

  1. Open the editor by launching an existing design or create a new one.
  2. Select the Uploads tab.
  3. Click the Purchased folder. This will reveal all elements bought with a Multi-use or Extended license.
  4. Click or drag your purchased stock photo to your design.

You may reuse these elements and designs with no additional cost.
