How to add a photo into Canva, the easy way!


Today, I would like to acknowledge the Yuggera people as the Traditional Owners of the beautiful land I am standing on today. From the mountains to the river, I open my heart and my eyes as I walk this land, listening, learning and caring for Country. I want to extend this respect to Elders; past, present and emerging and to all First Nations peoples reading this post today. We are all remembered here.


Just so you know, this post does contain sponsored content through the use of affiliate links, my proud partnerships and my own products and resources. I want to thank each of you for continuing to use my affiliate links to support the work I do. As you know, each blog post is based on my own experiences, opinions, and what I have been taught, and does not represent all First Nations peoples or Communities. Please remember that, connecting with your local First Nations Community is always the most respectful way for you to embed First Nations content specific to your area.


This simple trick has literally saved me hours and hours of time! It is ridiculous the amount of time I have saved just by using this simple and fast Canva hack! I have eliminated clicking at least four buttons every time I want to add an image and when you add that up over time it is a lot, even though it seems small. My Nan always used to say "little fish are sweet" and she was really right, but this one has a BIG win!

So, let's get into it!

Today I am sharing with you a video (my very first Youtube video, so please be kind) that shows you the fastest way to insert a photo into Canva.

I hope this video has helped you to save time during your busy teacher life. If you liked this video then please give it a thumbs up on YouTube and also please remember to subscribe to my channel, so that you can get updates on any new Canva tutorials and hacks that I make for you.

Want to save more time?

If you are anything like me and love saving time and money, then you should really give my templates a go. Made specifically for teachers, this ever growing store and membership of pre-designed 100% customisable teacher templates are easy to download, customise to suit your classroom and student's needs and then print out. I have spent the time creating these to save you time in your classroom. If this sounds like you then head over to my templates page where you will find a collection of templates that is continuously growing and expanding to make teachers lives easier.

Here are a few to check out!

Alternatively, if you love saving money, you can sign up for my Unlimited Library where you can get all of these teacher templates for one yearly price. So many teachers choose this option to not just save money compared with buying each individual template, but also to grandfather themselves in for that price for the duration of their membership. Which is smart and saves a lot of money because even if the price of the Unlimited Library membership goes up each year (which, as with everything, it naturally does) you will continue to pay the same amount you signed up for regardless of what the current price is. Unless you cancel your membership of course, in which case you would then have to sign up for the new pricing. So this is definitely worth it, if you are a savvy teacher who loves the freedom to explore, download and save money.

Did you know teachers can apply to get a special educator's version of Canva Pro for FREE?

Please remember if you are a teacher, then you can head over to the Canva education page where as a teacher, you can get a Canva education subscription for free. Alternatively, if you are someone who would like to try Canva Pro for free but you are not an eligible teacher, I will include my affiliate link here free for you to get a free trial of Canva Pro, which is exactly what I have used to create this video that you can see up here, plus everything else that you see on my Instagram, Pinterest, website and everywhere else. I love it and I will NEVER go without it!

Join in the conversation!

Speaking of Instagram , Pinterest and Youtube if you don't already follow me on these platforms then I would love for you to come over and say 'hi' so I can share with you there too. I love the different capabilities that each platform offers and love sharing with you in different ways to build your confidence and our little (or not so little anymore) community.

Hello! I noticed that in your video you cut off a significant part of the content that you considered unnecessary, and that’s right. Your guide turned out to be succinct and understandable. Please tell me, is this suitable for trimming my YouTube videos? Need advice from someone who knows.
