Enhance your images for free

Give your images an instant boost with our built-in photo editor.

Forget complicated photo editing software. With Canva, you can upload your images and instantly add beautiful filters with one click—no editing experience required.

Increase the saturation, balance the contrast, blur the background, and turn your once-colorful image into a sleek black-and-white photo through easy-to-use sliders. For more depth and definition, add shadows or use the Auto Focus feature.

Create instant mockups with the Smartmockups tool. If you’re on Canva Pro, use the background remover tool to quickly erase or replace the backdrop.

No time to tinker with tools? Simply click Auto Enhance, move the slider, and watch your photos come to life. Take your images one step further by choosing a photo effect or applying a photo filter. Add nostalgic charm to your photos with a vintage filter.

With Canva’s photo editor, you’ll perfect each image on each collage within minutes.

Access millions of stock photos and illustrations

Creating a photo collage doesn’t need to be a costly or time-consuming process. Canva’s image library has millions of fresh and modern images and illustrations to choose from.

The best part? Many of these images are free, and premium images are extremely affordable.

Simply search for the type of images you are after, and drag them straight into your design.

Upgrade your picture collage with special effects

Canva’s photo collage maker does so much more than just place your images next to one another.

You have access to various tools to take your collage to new heights (no design skills necessary!).

Give your images extra personality by placing borders, rotating images, playing with fonts and colors, overlaying images, and adding illustrations to your template. Put frames, adjust the tint, intensify shadows, or blur the images out. Make them warm, make them vibrant, or make them fade.

All of these and more with our free online collage maker.
