What will work with Canva?
Before we get to the goods, I realize a lot of people might be wondering what resources will work with Canva. Canva graphic uploads are limited to specific file types and sizes and you can only upload fonts if you’re using Canva for Work.
If you want to know if something will work with Canva, look for the following:
- .PNG, .JPG, or .SVG files
- Files that aren’t designed for print and therefore are using the CMYK color space
- Single files under 25mb – note that this ISN’T the pixel resolution of the image
.PSD (Photoshop), .AI (Illustrator), or .INDD (InDesign) will not work with Canva. These are file formats specifically for Adobe design programs and can’t be opened by Canva. You’d have to open the file in the corresponding program and resave as a PNG or JPG to upload it.
For fonts, make sure you’re using these file formats:
- Open Type (.OTF)
- True Type (.TFF)
- Web Open Font (.WOFF)
Most fonts are already available in these formats, so you shouldn’t have to worry about this. I’ve never seen a font that wasn’t one of these but that doesn’t mean there’s not something out there.
