Download Designs with Transparent Background

Download your design with a transparent background for use in other projects.

This option is available with a Canva Pro or Canva for Enterprise subscription. It’s also available with a Canva for Education or Canva for Nonprofits account status.

Here’s how:

  1. Set your background color to white, or delete any existing background by selecting it and clicking the trash icon on the toolbar.
  2. Click Download from the top corner of the editor. If it’s unavailable, click the ••• button first.
  3. Click the File type dropdown, and choose PNG.
  4. Tick the Transparent background option.
  5. Optional: Tick Compress file size, and drag the slider to adjust the compression ratio.
  6. If your design has multiple pages, select the pages you want to download from the dropdown, and click Done.
  7. If your design has premium elements, click the Premium elements dropdown, and choose a license for each element by clicking the arrow next to them. You can also download a watermarked draft before proceeding to pay.
  8. Click Download, or Pay and Download.

Tip: With the same subscription or account status, easily remove image backgrounds with the background remover.
