Use Dropbox images as backgrounds

Launch Canva directly from your Dropbox account, and use saved images in your designs as backgrounds:

  1. Log in to your Dropbox account.
  2. Hover your mouse over the image you want to use as a background, and click Open.
  3. Select Canva.
  4. Click Allow to grant Canva access. Wait for your file to be processed and opened in Canva. The design dimensions will follow the image dimensions.
  5. Make your edits, and click Save to Dropbox to save an edited copy directly in your Dropbox account.

For more flexibility in using Dropbox media files in your designs, import them to Canva instead.
