General photo submission requirements
In order to offer Canva users a broad and safe selection of great quality imagery, we need to specify our particular needs and requirements. To save us time, we’re detailing these requirements here so you know what to send us.
- JPG for normal photos
- PNG for files with transparency (cutouts)
- JPG Color format: RGB (AdobeRGB1998 recommended)
- Minimum resolution: 4 megapixels
- Maximum file size: 50 megabytes
We require you to have all the necessary releases for all content you submit to Canva. While we do not require that you submit them to us with your images, we do need you to produce them on request.
Releases are required whenever a person could recognize themselves in a photo or illustration, and for all property including logos, designs, art and real estate.
You’re welcome to use any model and property release templates that meet standard requirements, or if you don’t already have any, you’re very welcome to use ours: Model Release Form and Property Release Form.
