When uploading photos to Canva, please ensure they meet the following requirements:

Uploading SVG files


When uploading SVG files in Canva, please make sure that your SVG file follows the following format:

  1. Must be saved with an SVG Profile of “SVG 1.1
  2. All strokes, paths, and text boxes should be expanded (Select your artwork > Object > Expand).
  3. Group shapes with the same color together.
  4. Avoid using textures and gradients in your illustration/icon.
  5. Ideal dimensions should be 150-200px wide.
  6. Fit your artwork within the artboard (Object > Artboards > Fit to Selected Art).

Remove all unnecessary layers, stray anchor points, and invisible objects.
