You can move individual designs by selecting and dragging a design into a folder, but if you have a lot of designs, that would be very time consuming.
Instead, I encourage you to move multiple designs and images at one time in Canva, as it is a far more efficient way to approach your organization, and in this quick Canva tutorial, I’ll show you how to accomplish that batch organizing.

You can move individual designs by selecting and dragging a design into a folder.
Alternately, if I just want to move a single design, I can click on the 3 dots in the upper right hand corner of the design thumbnail, and choose to move it like this.
But if you have a lot of designs, that would be very time consuming.
Instead, I encourage you to batch organize your designs as it is a far more efficient way to approach your organization.
So how do you do this?
You will simply hover over a design, and when the checkbox appears here, you can check off any design that you want to move.
When you do this, you will notice that a folder icon appears in the bottom middle of the page next to the trash icon. A lot of business owners miss this part, and instead, they try to select multiple images and drag them into a folder. And then when that doesn’t work, they assume that batch organization isn’t possible.
Instead once you have your multiple designs selected, come down here to this folder icon. You’ll see when I hover over it, it says “move to folder”, and when you click on the folder icon , you will have the ability to choose which folder to move the designs to.
The process of moving your images is the same.
You’ll hover over the images and select the ones you want to move… click on the folder icon at the bottom of the screen… choose the folder that you want to move them to. And move them.
However, a really important caveat here.
If you are on a free Canva plan, you are going to need to leave your images inside of your Uploads folder if you want to be able to access them from inside the design editor.
You can only access your custom folders if you have a Canva Pro plan.
For example, if I open up the design editor, you can see that I can go to the Folders tab like this.
If you don’t see Folders, you’ll find it underneath the More tab with the 3 dots at the bottom of the sidebar navigation.
If I have Canva Pro, I can go into my folders, find my image folder system, and locate the image I want.
If you are on Canva’s free plan, you won’t have the ability to do this, so you’ll need to leave everything inside of Uploads.
