Canva’s getting better and better by the day as it hosts a ton of new features for its users, including the new tables feature.
But, while it’s incredibly nifty to create your designs through the web version of Canva, sometimes, you just got to use your phone.
Good thing that the Canva app’s latest update features an interface that looks akin to its web version.
So, if you plan to create a design on the Canva app and you need access to your uploaded files, you won’t have to search for long.
Yet, if you’re a beginner and don’t know where to access Uploads on the Canva app, read on to find out.
How to Access Uploads on Canva Mobile App
To access Uploads on Canva app, tap on the Menu button on the bottom menu bar. Press on the Uploads folder to see your uploaded files there. If you’re on the editor page already, you can access your uploads by pressing the purple “+” icon and tapping the Uploads option on the toolbar.
Accessing Uploads on Canva App: 2 Nifty Methods
As mentioned above, accessing your uploaded files — images, videos, and audio — need not be so confusing.
Even if you’re a new Canva app user, you won’t have to adjust to a new interface as the layout’s almost like that of the web version.
Do note, though, that there are two ways on how you can find your uploaded files.
Method 1: Accessing Uploads from Menu Bar
Step 1: Log into your account in Canva.
Step 2: On the Canva app’s homepage, head to the menu bar at the bottom and tap on the Menu option.
Step 3: Head to the All your Folders option. You’ll then be redirected to another page.
Step 4: On the succeeding page that appears, head to the Uploads option. It’s found after the Purchased button.
Step 5: Tap on the Uploads option. From there, you can view all the files that you’ve uploaded on Canva.
Scroll down to choose the file you’d like to use for your design.
Step 6: As Canva’s got limited storage (even if you’re a Pro user), you might want to manage your uploaded files.
If there are some images, audio, or videos that you’re not using, tap the ellipsis icon found on top of that particular file.
Press the Trash option to successfully remove the file from your Uploads folder.
Step 7: You can also upload new images, videos, and audio directly to this folder by pressing the ellipsis button on the upper right corner of the screen.
Then, tap on the Upload option.
Very simple, right? But, let’s say you’re already inside the editor page.
Where then can you access your uploaded files if you’re in the middle of designing?
Method 2: Accessing Uploads in the Editor Page
Step 1: Tap the purple “+” icon on the lower-left corner of the editor page.
Step 2: On the menu bar that appears at the bottom of the screen, swipe until you see the Uploads button.
Step 3: You will then be redirected to the Uploads section where all your imported files are stored.
Press the Images section to access your pictures, Videos for footage imported to the app, and Audio for any music files you’ve used on your designs.
Step 4: You can upload new files directly from the Uploads section by tapping the Upload media button.
Impressive, huh? So, you don’t have to worry if you need to create a quick adjustment on your Canva designs and you only have a phone on hand.
