Note on Possible Error Messages
While Canva uploads many SVG files without issue, sometimes you will see an error message:
There are several possible explanations for why you are not able to upload your SVG to Canva without seeing an error message:
- If you are uploading SVG images, they should be under 3MB in size, within 150 to 200 pixels wide, and should be saved with SVG 1.1 Profile.
- Make sure you are not uploading multiple files at once. Canva can easily become overwhelmed if you are uploading many large or complex file types at once.
- Make sure you actually uploaded the SVG version of your file. Canva only allows certain file types.
- If you’re using Adobe Illustrator to create your SVG file, change the CSS Properties to Presentation Attributes before saving
