Free Canva for Work content

Availing a Canva for Work subscription bundle enables you to search and use more images for free. All images, which are free under the Canva for Work subscription, can be identified with a “Free” label with a crown icon on their thumbnails.

note: This article discusses an exclusive Canva for Work feature. If you are a standard Canva user, you can check out our other article about free content for all.

Using free for Canva for Work content

As a Canva for Work subscriber, you can use free for Canva for Work content on any of your designs. No watermarks should show up on the element and you should not be prompted to pay for it upon download.

To ensure elements are free under your Canva for Work subscription:

  1. Hover your mouse cursor over the element you’d like to use.
  2. Click on •••  to load the media details.
  3. Look for the “Free for Canva for Work” detail.

note: If you were prompted to pay upon downloading the design, it might be possible that you used a premium element that is not free for Canva for Work subscribers.

Apply search filter for free content

Aside from doing a normal search using keywords and then browsing for photos with the “Free” label, as a Canva for Work subscriber, there is also another way to search for exclusive free content. This is done by filtering search results.

To search for free content only:

  1. Click on the Elements tab.
  2. Click on the search field and then click on the Free only checkbox.
  3. Enter a keyword. This pulls up all relevant results for your search. All search results should be marked as “Free” or “Free” with a crown icon.
  4. Narrow down your search results by clicking on the Photos or Graphics tabs found beneath the search bar.
