But, did you know you can also use Canva to remove the background from images? It’s a handy tool often overlooked by many users. In this blog post, we’ll walk you through the process.

Step-By-Step Guide to Removing Your Image Background in Canva

With Canva, you can remove the background from an image in a few simple steps. This feature is available to Canva Pro, Canva for Enterprise, Canva for Education, and Canva for Nonprofits users. Here’s how to do it!

Step 1: Upload Your Image

Firstly, log in to your Canva account. In the editor, click on the Uploads tab, and then click on the Upload Media button. From here, choose the image from your device you want to edit.

Step 2: Select Your Image

Once your image is uploaded, click on it to add it to your design. Position the image as needed.

Step 3: Remove the Background

Things to Keep in Mind

It’s worth noting that the quality of the background removal can depend on the image you’re working with. Complex images with multiple subjects or intricate details might not get perfectly clean edges. For best results, use images where the subject is clearly differentiated from the background.
