Click Photos on the left toolbar.

A close-up of the left sidebar in the Venngage Editor, with the Photos heading highlighted in a dark red box.


Type a keyword into the search bar and select a photo to add it to the page, or upload your own image.

Add the image to the design canvas by either clicking or dragging and dropping it onto your design.

In the Venngage Editor, a design canvas with a white background shows white text on a back text box. The user clicks on 'Photos' in the left toolbar and searches for photos of city. They click a photo of a city with large skyscrapers backed by a sunset, with red lights of cars illuminating a city street. The photo appears on the design canvas. The user resizes the photo with the selection tools to fill the dimensions of the design canvas. The user then clicks the 'Move to Back' button in the top toolbar, and the photo appears in the background of the design, with the heading text overlaid on top of it.


Click the image, then click the Move to back button on the top toolbar. 

A close-up of the top toolbar in the Venngage Editor; the 'Move to Back' icon, two downward pointing arrows stacked vertically, is highlighted by a black label tag which displays the icon label.


Click or drag your gradient image onto the page. Resize the image so that it fits your design canvas, by dragging the image handles at the corners and edges.

Use the Move to Back button in the top toolbar to set the photo as the background layer of the design.
