Add and remove photos on your design

This article explains how to add and remove photos in your design. To know more about uploading, deleting, and managing your own photos, you can refer to our dedicated article about Uploading photos.

Add photos to your design

  1. Open the Photos tab.
  2. Click the > button to scroll through existing photo categories.
  3. You can also do a keyword search to look for specific photos.
  4. Select a photo you wish to use.
  5. Alternatively, open the Uploads tab to use a photo you’ve uploaded.
  6. Click on the photo to add it to your design, or drag and drop it onto the page.
  7. Feel free to resize or apply a filter.

note: If you have a grid added to the canvas, the photo will automatically snap to fill the grid when dragged.

Delete photos from your design

  1. Select the photo you wish to delete.
  2. Click on the Trash icon from the toolbar to delete the photo.

note: If you used grids, two other options will appear. Choose Delete image to delete the photo inside the grid or choose Delete element to delete the whole grid.

If you wish to delete the photos you uploaded in Canva, please check out the article: Upload and delete your own photos.
