Free Canva content

Need a specific element to complete your design? Canva’s content library has tons of photos, illustrations, icons, and other objects you can use for free whether you’re a standard Canva user or a Canva for Work user.

note: Free elements will always have a FREE tag at the bottom right corner of the thumbnail display.

Search for free elements

If you need a specific element you’ll be able to find it faster by using the search bar.

To search for a free element:

  1. Open an existing design or create a new design.
  2. Click on the search bar just above the object panel.
  3. Type in a keyword and hit Enter on your keyboard. This pulls up all relevant results for your search.
  4. Filter the results to just Photos or Illustrations by clicking on the respective tabs found beneath the search bar.
  5. Click on an element to add to your design.

As a Canva for Work user you can also filter your search to show only free content. Check out our Free Canva for Work content article to learn how.

Browse free elements

If you’d like to see what elements are available on Canva, you can always browse through folders in the object panel.

To browse for free elements:

  1. Open an existing design or create a new design.
  2. Click on the Elements tab then select the folder of the kind of element you’re looking for.
  3. Scroll down to browse the available Canva elements.
  4. Click on an element to add to your design.
