Canvas Designer has a "Send Email" feature which sends the displayed artowrk in a high-quality 32-bit PNG format (including alpha transparency information). For example, if you like a particular effect of an element (or multiple elements) and you wish to use them in your own artwork design on your Mac/PC, do the following:

  1. In case you wish to keep the transparency information, set the Background color to transparent in your Canvas settings.
  2. Set the Quality / speed to fine so your design will export in all its glory.
  3. Do not forget to select 100% for Resolution / size, otherwise you will not get the full resolution.
  4. Make sure to Redraw your design after changing these settings (long-pressing onto the canvas to change the quality automatically redraws your design).
  5. If you are happy with what you see on screen, tap the Action button and select Send As Email - send the email to yourself.
