How To Transparent Background In Canva

Canva is a powerful, user-friendly design tool that’s becoming increasingly popular for both personal and professional uses. It’s fantastic for creating social media posts, presentations, infographics, logos, and plenty more. One particularly useful feature in Canva is the ability to create designs with a transparent background. This is ideal for creating logos, icons, or any other images that you want to superimpose on other backgrounds. In today’s blog post, we’ll delve into how you can create a transparent background in Canva.

Step 1: Create or Open a Design

To start off, you’ll need to either create a new design or open an existing one. If you’re creating a new design, remember to choose the correct dimensions for the project you’re working on.

Step 2: Delete or Hide the Background

If you’re working on a new design, you can simply leave the background as it is because it’s already transparent. However, if you’re working on an existing design with a colored background, you’ll need to delete it. To do this, click on the background and then click the Delete button in the toolbar.

Step 3: Download with Transparent Background

Once you’re happy with your design, it’s time to download it with a transparent background. To do this, click the Download button at the top right corner of the screen. In the dropdown menu, select PNG as the file type. Then check the box that says Transparent Background.

Here’s what it should look like:
