How To Transfer Canva To Google Slides

Canva is a fantastic tool that provides a wide range of design templates for all your digital content creation needs. However, there may be times when you want to transfer your Canva designs to Google Slides, either for a presentation or to collaborate with a team. Let’s take a look at how you can do this in a few simple steps.

Step 1: Download Your Canva Design

First, you need to save your Canva designs onto your device. Here is how:

  • Open your Canva design.
  • Click on the Download button at the top right corner of the screen.
  • Select the PNG or JPG option for best quality. If your design has multiple pages, be sure to select All pages.
  • Click Download again to save your design.

Step 2: Upload Your Design to Google Slides

Once you have your design saved, you can add it to your Google Slides presentation.

  • Open your Google Slides presentation.
  • Click on the slide where you want to add the Canva design.
  • Select Insert from the menu, then choose Image.
  • From the options, select Upload from computer if you have your design saved on your device. Locate your Canva design file and click Open.
  • Resize and adjust the image as needed.

Tip: Transfer Multiple Canva Designs at Once

If you have multiple Canva designs to transfer, you can save time by downloading them as a PDF, then importing the PDF to Google Slides.

Follow the same steps as above to download your Canva designs, but select the PDF Standard option instead of PNG or JPG. Then, in Google Slides:

  • Click on File > Open.
  • Switch to the Upload tab.
  • Click on Select a file from your device and locate your PDF file.

Google Slides will automatically convert each page of the PDF into a separate slide. This is particularly useful for transferring multi-page Canva designs.


Transferring your Canva designs to Google Slides is straightforward and hassle-free when you follow these steps. Whether you want to enhance your presentations with top-notch Canva designs or collaborate with your team on Google Slides, this guide has got you covered. Happy designing!
