How To Convert Canva to Photoshop

Have you ever found yourself wanting to do something in Canva, but you just can’t get it done with that tool? Well, I have recently. So, I needed to find a way to move an existing design from Canva to Photoshop.

There is no direct conversion from Canva to Photoshop, however, there is a workaround. We can use a cool online tool called PhotoPea to help us. Essentially, the PhotoPea app is going to take the PDF that we export from Canva and convert it into a PSD with all layers represented. This is a huge time saver! Check out my simple instructions below.

  • Download your Canva design as a high-resolution pdf.
  • Go to, which is an online photo editor.
  • Open the high resolution pdf file (layers will be intact)
  • Go to File > …Save as > …PSD
  • Open PSD in Photoshop

That’s It! Pretty simple right?

Have fun!
