How to make your own background

  1. Pick a size and shape

    There are several project sizes available with Adobe Spark, although the “Landscape” option is the most appropriate for computer backgrounds. Click the “Resize” option and choose from the list of predefined sizes, or enter in your own dimensions.

  2. Choose a theme

    The themes available with Adobe Post include a selection of different design elements, all of which you can edit. Click the “Design” link at the top of the page and select that theme that best matches your vision.

  3. Personalize with images

    Any computer background is only ever as good the images used to make it. Bring your background to life by clicking the “+” icon above the preview panel; upload your own image or add a free photo from the internet.

  4. Describe with engaging text

    It’s entirely your choice whether or not you want text on your background. To get started, simply click the “Text” link at the top of the page, and create or edit your text until you’re happy with the results.

  5. Download, share, or print

    Share your background via social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. Alternatively, download your background and use it on all of your computer screens at home.

Keep backgrounds unique with custom options

Adobe Spark allows you to make your own background according to your own tastes and preferences. The design process involves a wide selection of customization options, which combine to create unique backgrounds that won’t be found elsewhere. You can make changes to text, images, alignments, themes and color schemes — until your design matches your vision. Feel free to experiment with different design elements, as you’ll be able to see the results of your changes instantly.

To start using Adobe Spark Post as a desktop background maker, open up Spark Post on your desktop, mobile, or tablet device. Explore premade themes, or start your own from scratch. There are countless sharing options once you’re finished making your background, so download your background for yourself and send it to your friends and family to enjoy, as well!

Add your imagination and personality

If you want a background for your computer, you have three choices: use one from your operating system, buy one or create your own. Adobe Spark puts you in charge of the design process, without the need for any technical skills. You can make as many changes as you like to create the background you originally envisioned. You don’t have to settle for someone else’s vision or rely on a professional to make your imagination come to life. Adobe Spark delivers quality that design professionals would be proud of, and it’s completely free to use.

Don’t rely on generic designs or expensive designers, create your own background in minutes with Adobe Spark.
