In Canva, premium elements are layered with watermarks – a criss-cross pattern superimposed on top of images to protect the element’s copyright holder.
Removing watermarks as a standard user
Premium elements have a $1 USD tag on its lower right corner. When you add paid elements to your design, the Canva watermark will be imposed on top of the image. You can remove the watermark only after you purchase the element and download the design.
To remove watermarks from your design:
- Click the Download button.
- Choose whether you want to purchase an image under the One-time use, Multi-use, or Extended License.
- Purchase and Download your design.
Removing watermarks as a Canva for Work user
As a Canva for Work user, you will have access to several premium elements for free. They will have a FREE tag on its lower right corner but will appear to have a watermark in the design. You can remove the watermark only after downloading the design with no additional cost.
To make sure the element is free, you can check out our Free Canva for Work content article.
