Preview Designs with Premium Elements

When added to your design, premium elements will have watermarks (criss-cross patterns) unless they’re purchased.

To see first how your design will look like before purchasing the premium elements that you used, you can download a watermarked draft:

  1. Click Download from the top corner of the editor. If it’s unavailable, click the ••• button first.
  2. Click the dropdown to choose a file type. Certain file types will have quality adjustment options for Canva ProCanva for EnterpriseCanva for Education, and Canva for Nonprofits users.
  3. If your design has multiple pages, select the pages you want to download from the dropdown, and click Done.
  4. Click Download a free watermarked draft (under the Pay and Download button).

The design will be saved to your device’s assigned download folder.

Once you’re happy with the design, purchase the premium elements to remove the watermarks.
