Thanks for the info. I have 400+ images online, started uploading by the end of june this year. Haven't reached payout yet (50$?). But I see more sales every month.

I guess PNG files are selling best there. I don't have any of those, some of my photos are waiting for cut-out, but as I understand, it may take years for them to be cut out.

From what I've heard, you can probably forget about cut-outs.  At least in your lifetime.  :'(   Better to cut them out yourself and resubmit.  Relatively simple if you're proficient with the pen tool in Photoshop.  Another thing to consider is seasonal images.  The vast majority of my current sales are Fall and Winter related.  Also some Easter related themes.  Once we get out of the time frame for these types of images, I suspect my sales will drop off unless I get off my butt and upload more season-related images.

Hi) I'm new at Canva, cannot find how to upload model release and where attach to photos. Could you help me?

A fair question, and one they don't answer on the site.  What you need to do is to put the release and the associated images in a folder and upload the whole folder to the FTP site.  Make sure the release file has "release" at the beginning of its name.  There's no way to determine if you got it right, or any way to connect a release to image files once you've submitted them.

I haven't uploaded any released photos to Canva in quite a while, and had to search this forum to remind myself how it worked.  I'm guessing not too many people supply that kind of content to Canva.

I'm getting annoyed with Canva.

I've uploaded vector files nearly 3 years ago, when Canva was just brand new. Sounded like a promising new venture (as it did for many other contributors) with a unique selling point.
Lee told us that vectors would be available some time later and my portfolio would be prioritized. I waited patiently. Canva became kind of successful (for photographers). I waited some more. Then, when vectors were finally ingested, my portfolio was still labeled 'in review'. Three months ago I decided to ask them what is taking so long. My files had supposedly 'fallen out of the review queue'. They promised me they'd reimport my files and review them.

Three months down the line, nothing has changed. My files are still not online. I sent them a second email today. If nothing has changed after a month, it's bye bye Canva.

I'm not on Canva but some photogs seem to report doing well there.  Most of my images are model released.  Many are isolated but none are png with background removed. 

Is it worth uploading there in my situation?

OLD THREAD ALERT.

Yes, I've had one EL.

Never had an EL but have had the 10-pack sales occasionally.  Unfortunately they have really dropped off from their peak - only about 20-25% from what they were 1.5 years ago.  I assume it is just too much competition from new images - it was bound to happen, just too bad it happened so quickly.

Indeed. Canva sales are drying up. A combination of increased competition and the (extremely frustrating) continuing deletions from my portfolio. Such a shame as things looked so promising a year or so back.

Unfortunately their search engine is terrible and hasn't been improved at all.  I wish they would work in it.

I get sometimes 10-pack sales, regularly irregularly. Canva sales are steady for me, not like SS which goes down all the time.

There has been a period where I got an EL every month, or multi pack sales, but lately I only have single sales. Also still struggling with getting my portfolio accepted. I upload images which are approved and then not long after rejected again. My portfolio has been gutted of most images.

Never got an EL. Several 10-pack sales, four of them so far this month. Canva is my very best seller, saw a huge increase in sales from January this year. I am a hobbyist with a quite small portfolio, but some of my images sell very well there, mostly backgrounds.

Do they accept backgrounds? I thought they don't as well as seamless patterns.

My backgrounds are photographs and scans, many of them of my non-digital art. I dont do vectors.

Is anyone having issues with their Canva account?

I've just logged-in to my admin area and the sales and portfolio areas have vanished.

Are you sure you are viewing the right "brand", you can switch between brands via the link in the top-left of your homepage.

Mine is working fine.  I think Mir is right - most likely you are on the buyer side where those are not available.

Thanks guys it's all back now, not entirely sure what happened as I had the sales area bookmarked and it always worked from there.

Are your vector images being reviewed or at least appearing in your portfolio waiting to be reviewed in the last two weeks?

Photos also have a similar thing going on. Uploaded photos are not appearing in the portfolio even after multiple days. I haven't tracked it so I don't know if it's weeks or just days, but it's definitely more than typical delay.
