Downloading a watermarked draft

In Canva, premium elements appear with watermarks – a criss-cross pattern superimposed on top of images to protect the element’s copyright holder. To remove the watermark from downloaded copy of your design, simply purchase and download your design.

However, if you would like to see what a downloaded copy of your design would look like prior to purchasing, you may download a watermarked draft of your design.

To download a watermarked draft:

  1. Click on the Download button inside the editor.
  2. A dialogue box will appear. Click on the Download watermarked draft option to commence the download.
