Shutdown Notice


Regretfully, due to the US H.R 1865 “FOSTA” laws making the Dropcanvas owners criminally and civilly liable for content uploaded by our users, and the new burden of EU GDPR requirements, we can no longer keep running the service.

No new canvases can be created, and all users have 30 days to move off the service - all canvases data will be purged on 21/9/2018.

Thank you for all your support over the years.

About us

Thanks for your interest in dropcanvas. Our goal is to make transferring images and files between friends fast and friendly. Although we're in beta right now, we welcome your feedback. Please don't hesitate to contact us.


Help, someone is serving up images or data that belongs to me, how do I remove it?

Please send us a message via the contact form with the url of the canvas and a brief explanation and we'll have it removed as quickly as we possibly can.

How do I delete a file or my entire canvas?

Using the browser you used to upload your images, simply click the "Edit" icon in the toolbar, and select the files manually you wish to delete, or use the delete all button at the bottom of your canvas.
Always bookmark or copy down your Canvas 'modify' link if you plan on coming back to your canvas at a later date to delete your data.

It says my files will expire. Why is that and how do I prevent it from happening?

For anonymous and free accounts there is a set expiry time after uploading to give you enough time to share the content you wish to share and try out the service. If your canvas gets activity, for example views or downloads - it will reset the expiry timer. This system is in place to purge inactive canvases, and maintain those that are active.
