Canva has so many gorgeous stock images to choose from, but wouldn't it be nice to be able to search through just the images that match your brand colors?

Today, I'm going to show you exactly how to do that!

Why You Should Color-Coordinated Your Images

Using photos on your blog, website, social media, etc. that match your brand's color palette gives off a professional and cohesive appearance and, in my opinion, is a main contributor to growth and success.

The trick I'm going to show you today makes it super easy to coordinate your imagery to create really cool mood boards, make your social media pages pop, or whatever else you want to do with it!

Filtering Images By Color On Canva

The first thing you'll need to do is go to You can create an account or log in (you can do this under a free account or a paid account, whatever you have).

Next, you're just going to search for a template to use, or create a new design from scratch.

  1. Once you have your design open and you're ready to work, go to Photos in the left-hand column.

2. Up in the search bar you can see that there's a filter option.

3. Here you can filter by color, photo orientation, price, etc. (Note: Your brand colors probably won't be listed under the default color options, so just click on the plus (+) color box to drag the color tool to a specific color, or enter the HEX number)

4. Lastly, apply your filters!

Immediately you will see the Trending Photos populate with images containing your filtered color, but of course you can narrow your search even further by typing in keywords in the search bar.
