Transform photos with magic

Ever wanted to add or replace something in your image, but never had the time or skills for complex editing software? Transform your photos with AI image editing using Canva’s Magic Edit, powered by Stable Diffusion. Simply brush over an area of your image and type to add anything you can imagine to the image. Add a fruit slice to a glass of lemonade to make it look more appealing, insert a sun into a plain sky to create warmth, or give someone a pair of shades to anonymize them. Let your imagination run wild, and turn text prompts into effortless edits with our AI-powered photo editor.

Erase clutter and remove backgrounds

Erase objects and remove backgrounds in your images

Need to remove unwanted distractions? Canva’s Magic Eraser lets you take out people and objects from images by brushing over them, so you can focus on what matters most: the subject of your photo. Whether it’s a stray cat, a random street sign, or a stranger in the wrong place at the wrong time, our AI picture editor makes it easy to remove unwanted parts of your photos and keep the rest intact. What if you need to get rid of the entire backdrop? No worries. The once-tricky background removal process is now simpler with our powerful Background Remover tool—just one click, and any product or logo can stand out and shine.

Correct your photos, fast

Stop spending time manually selecting or removing outlines. Let Canva and a little magic do it for you. When you upload your image, our AI-based photo enhancer automatically detects the foreground and background and allows you to adjust each of these areas independently. Take control of your photos with simple adjustment sliders. Find the perfect blend of warmth, brightness, and saturation to fine-tune your image. Strapped for time? Click Auto-adjust and get a sharper look with more defined colors and balanced lighting in seconds.
