How To Download High Resolution Images From Canva? [Complete 2024 Guide]

Last updated on February 4, 2024 @ 6:32 pm

There are a few different ways that you can download high-resolution images from Canva. One way is to click on the “Download” button located in the upper right-hand corner of the image.

This will give you the option to download the image in either a JPEG or PNG format. If you need to download the image in a vector format, you can click on the “More options” button and select the EPS option.

Another way to download a high-resolution image from Canva is to first click on the image to open it up in a new window. Once the image is open, right-click on it and select “Save As” from the drop-down menu.

This will allow you to save the image to your computer in either a JPEG, PNG, or EPS format.

But first, let’s define some technical terms for you to understand what it means to have high-resolution images.

Image Resolution: What is it?

Image resolution is measured in dots per inch (dpi) or pixels per inch (ppi). It is a measure of the number of pixels used in an image. The higher the resolution, the better your images will look when printed out or viewed onscreen. The higher the dpi value for an image format means more detail is packed into each pixel by using smaller areas of color. In contrast, the lower the dpi, the larger the areas that might lead to fewer colors showing up across all pixels, which would result in lower quality or a loss of detail.

For example, if you were to zoom in on an image that was scaled down from 100% to 50%, then this would be like increasing the number of dpi from 150 ppi to 300 ppi — the difference being how much detail was lost by scaling down your image without changing its original size.

How To Download High-Resolution Images From Canva: Step-by-Step

If you need to download multiple high-resolution images from Canva at once, you can click on the “Download” button located in the upper right-hand corner of the site. This will open a new window where you can select which images you want to download.

Once you have selected all the images you need, click on the “Download” button at the bottom of the window. This will give you the option to download all of the images in either a JPEG or PNG format.

Here’s how to download high quality images from Canva:

Step #1: Go to the upper right corner of the Canva editor, and click “Share”.

Canva added descriptions on each image file type so you can select the best and the right image depending on its purpose.

Step #4: Set the pixels high, not less than 300 px, to achieve a rich and glossy texture when printing.

Step 5: Click “Download” and open your newly downloaded high-resolution image. Here’s an example:

Canva Pro vs. Adobe Photoshop: Which is best for downloading high-res images?

Canva pro and Adobe Photoshop allow you to create high-resolution files, but they differ in the way they handle file sizes. Canva uses a method of compression that allows it to compress your images while still maintaining their quality, so if you have a large image that takes up more space than usual (like an enormous landscape), it will still look great when printed out as a poster or canvas print.

Adobe does not use this type of compression on its programs—the end result is always going to be lower quality than what can be achieved with Canva pro or other similar apps like PicMonkey Pro or Pixlr Editor+.

Both tools offer value for money, but one might suit your needs better than the other. Canva Pro is cheaper, so if you’re looking for a tool that’s easy to use and offers more features than Photoshop, then it might be worth considering Canva Pro over Adobe Photoshop. However, if you’re looking for a professional design aesthetic with fewer limitations on how you create your designs, then you may need Adobe Photoshop.

Canva offers an easier-to-use interface than Adobe Photoshop does – which means new users will find it easier to use in their workflows without having any prior experience with photo editing software before starting out on their projects!

PRO TIP: Canva is a great way to download high-resolution images; however, there are a few things to keep in mind.

First, when downloading an image from Canva, make sure that the image is at least 300 DPI. This will ensure that the image is high resolution and will not appear blurry when printed. Secondly, keep in mind that some images on Canva are copyrighted and cannot be used without permission.

If you are unsure about whether or not an image is copyrighted, it is best to contact the artist or copyright holder directly.


Canva is incredibly easy to use, and it’s so intuitive that you can create amazing images in just a few minutes.

No matter which method you use to download high-resolution images from Canva, you will always have access to both JPEG and PNG versions of your images. If you need to download a vector version of an image, be sure to select EPS when given the option.
