When you download a design from Canva that has multiple pages, the default file naming is to name each page of the design with its page number.
Sometimes that’s fine. Other times, you’d really like to have a more intuitive naming system on those individual files so that you can quickly and easily identify them.
So in this tutorial, I’ll show you how to name your design pages so that they are more clearly named when you download designs.

So for example, if I were to download this presentation design as a PNG format, the 17 pages would download in a zip file, and when I open that zip file, you’ll see that there are 17 files, starting with 1.png through 17.png.
Sometimes that’s fine.
Other times, you’d really like to have a more intuitive naming system on those individual files so that you can quickly and easily identify them.
So here’s how you can do that.
Back in the Canva design, you’ll see where it labels the page numbers here, for example, Page 1… Page 2… and so on.
But you may not have noticed that right next to the page number, it says “Add page title”. So let’s do that now.
I’ll call this “Title Slide: Avoid a Website Nightmare”.
Then for page 2, I’ll call it “Title Slide: Fix Slow Website”
I could then continue naming each page with something that describes it, but I’ll just do those two for the purposes of this example.
Now I’m going to download the whole design in PNG format again.
And now, when I open up the zip this time, you’ll see that pages 1 and 2 are no longer named 1.png and 2.png – instead, there are descriptive names that make it easy for me to know what those designs are for.
This is going to save you a lot of time when you download your files in the future, so you don’t accidentally grab the wrong page of a design, or have to spend unnecessary time opening files, as you try to identify what a numbered file contains.
