Designers and creatives are always on the lookout for backgrounds and textures that artfully set the tone for their projects and work. Luckily, the Canva stock library is packed full of them.
If you’ve used Canva once or twice before, you’ll know that we’re committed to ensuring everyone who designs with us creates work that intrigues and captures the eye. Our library of background and textures are used so often because they enable our users to achieve these goals. From fabrics to beautiful flat lay images, panoramic nature views to amazing macro shots — and everything in between — you’re sure to find a background image that’s right for your design. Perfect for presentation slides, posters, flyers or any other design that needs some added texture, you can use any image in the Canva stock photo library alongside any Canva template or layout.
Canva hosts thousands of free design templates you can customize and personalize for your needs. Just drag and drop your chosen image into layout to get started. From there, take advantage of the easy to use design tools in Canva to edit it to perfection. Use grids or frames tools to organize your images then use the photo editing tools to enhance or add flair to your photos. You can crop, resize or scale any image within Canva plus add filters or effects.
Browse through Canva’s collection of background and texture images and choose one that will give your designs the striking effect you’re looking to achieve.
