Remix Your Photos With Canva Photo Editor

Our Photo Editor combines all of the Canva features you already know and love, making the end-to-end creative process more seamless than ever before.


The last decade has fuelled an incredible surge when it comes to the amount of visual content, photos, and videos we’re creating and sharing. Now more than ever, millions of people worldwide communicate their ideas, tell stories, build businesses, and create memories through visual content. While we’re now sharing more kinds of content than ever before, photos have always been a staple part of the way we communicate.

The rapid rise of social media has made sharing photos more critical than ever. Whether you’re a small business creating a range of product imagery, a restaurant showcasing your latest menu, an influencer capturing your day, or an everyday creator capturing and sharing memories with friends and family — photos, and visual content, have become the default for impactful communication.

More than a trillion photos have been taken in the last year alone, but taking photos is only half of the equation. The other half is editing and sharing your photography with the world. But editing photos shouldn’t take expensive software, complex processes, or advanced knowledge.

Effortlessly Remix Photos

Whether you’re editing a portrait, product, or selfie, Canva’s Photo Editor combines powerful editing effects into one simple experience. It’s easier than ever to create standout content across every channel. Whether you’re uploading a selfie to Instagram, creating a product mockup for your online store, or editing that perfect vacation shot — Canva makes it simple to enhance, retouch, focus, filter, frame, mockup, stylize or otherwise remix your photos to create the perfect image.

Our photo editor lets you upload, edit, design, and share your photos in just a few clicks — and we’ve focused on tools that simplify previously complex tasks. With a single tap in Canva, you remove or blur a background, automatically enhance or retouch your image, or create a realistic product mockup. We’ve got everything you need to create professional photos on any device.
