Something's not working

Photos we don’t accept

Canva works with many schools so we’ve set a higher bar in terms of NSFW content than most places. To save you time and effort, here are examples of what not to include in your portfolio to minimize rejections. 

Nudity and sexual content

Any images that show genitalia, pubic hair, unclothed buttocks, female nipples and explicit sexual positions. Implied nudity with a seductive context is also rejected. Implied nudity with a medical context is fine.

Violence and gore

Images with subjects that Canva considers violent and upsetting include:

  • Gore (i.e. too much blood, open wounds, internal organs, etc)
  • Suicide or suicidal attempts (i.e. noose around neck, blade against wrist, etc)
  • Any weapon pointed at an individual in the photo
  • Consumption of illegal drugs.


Images of famous people and characters are considered editorial and are not accepted in Canva. This also includes crowd scenes that appear to have been shot in public – anything with a crowd of people who are NOT models there specifically for a photo shoot.

Visible brands

We don’t accept images showing any brands or logos, whether as text, as an icon or the actual product.

Composites and collages

Canva is a design tool and our users want flexibility in how they make their designs. For this reason why want our image collection to be design elements, rather than completed or partially completed designs.

Digital text

Text in images is confusing in a design editor like Canva. This is why we don’t accept images where the text has been added after the photo was shot or when the text in the photo is the primary (or near primary) subject of the image.

Rasterized illustrations

Illustrations are editable in Canva. However, if illustrations are rasterized and submitted as photos, we lose those interactive abilities. For this reason we can’t accept rasterized illustrations.
