Downloading designs for social media

Social media sites like Facebook and Twitter often compress uploaded images to save bandwidth and to allow faster loading time. The downside is that it can make your image appear blurry.

Here are options you can take to get the best results when uploading your designs to social media.

Download design as PNG


  1. On the Editor, click on Download button.
  2. Under File Type, click the arrow and select PNG from the dropdown box. Note that it may already be set as PNG, depending on your design.
  3. Click Download to save your design as a PNG file to your computer.

note: For more information about the file types Canva offers, please check out this article Download the right file type in our Help Center.

Double the design’s dimensions


Doubling the size of a design that is meant for uploading to social media will help quality loss should the site compresses the file. It is important to know what are the current dimensions of the design in order to properly resize it.

To view your design’s current dimensions:

  1. Click File.
  2. The dropdown box will show the current size of your design.

Using Canva for Work features


For Canva for Work users, existing designs can be resized using either the Magic Resize feature or the Change Dimension feature, which can allow you to enter custom sizes.

Standard Canva users will need to create the design from scratch by using the Use custom dimensions button found on the upper right-hand corner of the Canva homepage.

note: For any downloading issues, feel free to check out the Something’s not working – Downloading page for troubleshooting fixes.
