Export a diagram to a PNG image

PNGs are used in web pages, documents and presentation slides. You can also export your diagram as a high resolution PNG for printing.

  1. Click File > Export As > PNG.
  2. Change the export settings to suit your requirements.
    • Choose the Zoom factor, set a Border width around your diagram, and enable the checkboxes if you want a Transparent Background, a Shadow on your shapes, or to include the Grid of the drawing canvas.
    • If you only want to export the shapes and connectors that are currently selected, enable the Selection only checkbox.
    • Make sure the checkbox to Include a copy of my diagram is selected if you want to be able to open your diagram and edit it again when you import the PNG file into draw.io.
      Choose the export settings for the PNG image
  3. Click Export and select the location to save your SVG file.
