How to Delete Uploaded Photos in PicsArt Photo Editor

PicsArt is one of the most popular photo and video editing apps, with over 150 million monthly active users. With so many images being uploaded, edited, and shared, you may eventually want to delete some photos from your PicsArt account. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to delete uploaded photos in PicsArt.

Accessing Your Uploaded Photos

The first step is accessing your uploaded photos in PicsArt:

  1. Open the PicsArt app on your mobile device or access PicsArt on the web.
  2. Tap/click on your profile icon in the bottom right (mobile) or top right (web).
  3. This will bring you to your profile page with all your uploaded images.

Deleting a Single Photo

To delete one image:

  1. Tap/click on the photo you want to delete.
  2. Tap/click on the 3 dots icon in the top right corner.
  3. Select “Delete” from the menu.
  4. Confirm that you want to delete the photo.

And you’re done! That image will be removed from your PicsArt account.

Deleting Multiple Photos

You can also delete multiple photos at once:

  1. From your profile page, tap/click “Select” at the top.
  2. Tap/click on all the images you want to delete (selected images will have a checkmark).
  3. Tap/click the trash can icon at the bottom to delete all selected photos.

Deleting All Uploads

If you want to delete your entire PicsArt upload history:

  1. Tap/click on “Settings” in the side menu.
  2. Select “Clear Uploads”.
  3. Confirm that you want to delete all your uploads.

Warning: This will delete your entire PicsArt upload history, so make sure you back up anything you want to keep first!

Tips for Managing PicsArt Uploads

Here are some tips to help manage photos in your PicsArt account:

  • Use collections to organize images. Create custom collections like “Family Photos”, “Travel 2023”, etc to keep uploads neatly organized.
  • Favorite important images. Tap/click the heart icon on uploads you want to easily access later. Favorited images are pinned to the top of your profile.
  • Back up downloads. Before deleting images, save copies you want to keep to your camera roll or cloud storage.
  • Review/delete uploads regularly. Do some “spring cleaning” every so often to clear out old or unused images.

Recovering Deleted Photos

If you accidentally deleted a photo from PicsArt and want to try recovering it:

  • Undo the deletion immediately by tapping/clicking “Undo” after deleting. This only works for a few seconds after deleting.
  • If it’s too late for Undo, contact PicsArt Support. Provide the image details and deletion date. They may be able to restore recently deleted photos.
  • If Support cannot recover the image, try restoring your device to a previous backup from before the image was deleted.

Recovering deleted photos is difficult and not always possible, so be careful when permanently removing images from your PicsArt account!

Deleting Photos Uploaded By Others

PicsArt has a large community of users who can view, remix, and share each other’s public uploads. If someone else uploaded your photo without permission, here is how to report it for removal:

  1. Tap/click the 3 dots above the image and select “Report”.
  2. Choose “It’s my property” and complete the form with your name, email, and proof of ownership.
  3. The PicsArt team will review your request and remove the photo if it violates their community guidelines.

You should receive confirmation once the image has been deleted.

Expert Tips for Managing PicsArt Uploads

As a digital marketing expert with over 10 years of experience using PicsArt professionally, here are my top pro tips for managing uploads:

Use third-party apps to download edits

Rather than cluttering up your PicsArt profile, use apps like Repost to download watermark-free versions of your edits to your camera roll. This keeps your PicsArt account clean while saving copies of your best work.

Create PicsArt collections for client projects

Stay organized by making a dedicated collection for each client campaign or project. This lets you quickly access, edit, and share relevant images.

Clean up old unused images regularly

Make it a habit to remove old unused uploads on a regular basis. Set a reminder to review and mass delete unnecessary images every month.

Favorite in-progress edits

If you need to come back to an edit later, favorite it to pin it to the top of your profile for easy access. Unfavorite it once the project is complete.

Use PicsArt as cloud storage

With plenty of free storage space, PicsArt can work as cloud storage for your best photo edits and graphics. Just be diligent about backing them up!


I hope this guide covered everything you need to know about removing photos from your PicsArt account! With the app’s powerful editing tools, it’s easy to accumulate lots of image uploads over time. Staying on top of curating and organizing your PicsArt library will make you more productive and creative in the long run.
