Submitting isolated photos
Isolated photos are photos with a ‘flat’ background, usually white. They’re difficult for Canva users to work within the editor so we don’t allow them into the collection.
We initially planned to remove the backgrounds ourselves but were overwhelmed with the quantity. Because of this, we do not accept isolated photos anymore.
We encourage our contributors to submit images with the background already cut out. Cutouts sell far better than regular images in Canva on average, so this is a great boost to your earning potential.
You can submit your cut out images in PNG format. However, PNG doesn’t support embedded metadata so submit a JPG preview file with the metadata embedded and the same filename as the PNG. Our system will know how to handle them.
