Purchasing premium elements
Canva’s image library houses more than a million free and premium photographs, icons and illustrations. This collection includes elements contributed by some of the world’s best photographers, graphic designers and illustrators.
Any element that was contributed by an artist is protected by a watermark – a criss-cross pattern superimposed on top of images. To remove the watermark, you first need to purchase and download your design.
Whether you are on a Canva Standard or Canva For Work account, premium elements in the Canva library costs $US1 under the terms of our One-time use License, $US10 under the terms of our Multi-use License or $US100 under the terms of our Extended License.
