Change photos in your design (iOS)

Using the right photos can make a world of a difference to a design. With Canva for iOS you can replace images in a template with photos of your own or from Canva’s library.

Upload from the Camera Roll


To use photos from your device’s Camera Roll:

  1. Create or open an existing design.
  2. Tap on the image in the design. This will bring up the photo editor menu.
  3. Select the Camera Roll tab and scroll through your library.
  4. Tap on the photo you’d like to use. This will automatically replace the selected image on your design.
  5. Alternatively, you can tap on the Camera Roll button at the bottom of the screen to select a particular photo folder from your device.

note: You have to allow Canva to have access to your Photos. If you’re having difficulties accessing your Camera Roll from the app, check the access settings from your device’s Settings.

Use Canva images


To use photos from Canva’s library:

  1. Create or open an existing design.
  2. Tap on the image in the design. This will bring up the photo editor menu.
  3. Select the Images tab and browse through Canva’s image library.
  4. Tap on the photo you’d like to use. This will automatically replace the selected image on your design.

note: Charges will apply if you use paid or premium images on your design. Premium images have stacked coins or crown icons on their thumbnails.

Take a photo from your phone’s camera


You also have the option to take a photo directly from your device’s camera. To do this:

  1. Create or open an existing design.
  2. Tap on the image in the design. This will bring up the photo editor menu.
  3. Tap on the Camera button, the first tile in the photo display.
  4. Allow the app to access your camera by tapping on OK.
  5. Tap the white button surrounded by a gradient circle to take a photo. This will automatically replace the selected image on your design.

Access the Uploads folder


If you wish to use a photo you’ve previously uploaded using Canva’s desktop browser app, you can access your Uploads folder by switching the photo folder view.

To access your Uploads folder:

  1. Create or open an existing design.
  2. Tap on the image in the design. This will bring up the photo editor menu.
  3. Tap on the Camera Roll button found at the bottom portion of your screen.
  4. Select the Uploads: Canva option. This will load the contents of your Uploads folder.
  5. Tap on the photo you wish to use. This will automatically replace the selected image on your design.
