Now, in the free version of Canva, you will have a background colour so make sure that the background matches where you’re going to place it. So for example, if your background colour of your website is white, awesome. keep it as is.

If you upgrade to Canva for Work then you can download your circle image on a transparent background which is really convenient and allows you to place it upon any colour or design you want.
