Download uploaded photos

You can download and save any photo you’ve previously uploaded in Canva. This is especially helpful when you’re using a different device or when your team members need copies of photos saved to their computer.

There are two ways to download uploaded photos, depending on your Canva editor version. Head over to our article about Canva 1.0 and 2.0 to find out which version you’re using.

Download uploaded photos (Canva 2.0)

To download uploaded photos from your uploads folder:

  1. Click on the Uploads tab in the side panel.
  2. Hover your cursor over the image you wish to download.
  3. Click on ••• on the photo thumbnail.
  4. Select Download original.

note: Depending on your browser settings, the photo will either automatically save to your computer’s designated Download folder or you will be prompted to choose where to save it.


Download uploaded photos (Canva 1.0)

note: This feature is only available for Canva for Work subscribers on Canva 1.0. All users can access this feature on Canva 2.0.

  1. Open or create a new design.
  2. Click on the Uploads tab from the side panel.
