Downloading files with transparent backgrounds make it easier to use on various designs by eliminating the need to edit backgrounds out.
This article discusses how to download Canva designs with transparent backgrounds. At the moment, removing backgrounds from existing images is not yet supported.

Downloading your designs with transparent backgrounds is only available for Canva for Work users. As with all Canva for Work features, this option to save your designs with transparent backgrounds can only be accessed on desktop browsers.
To download your design with a transparent background:
- Click on the Download or the white down arrow button (found between the Share and Publish buttons) in the editor’s menu bar.
- Choose to save your design as a PNG.
- Check the box beside the Transparent background option.
- Click on Download.
Make sure your design has a plain colored background before downloading your design. If your design has a photo, illustration, or gradient background, the transparent background feature will not work.
