How to make a background
Choose a photo that you like from PicMonkey’s stock library or use your own.
Arrange your chosen graphics on your canvas, adjust the size, change colors, or add outlines or a drop shadow. Most of our graphics are vectors so they will not blur when you resize them.
If you want to add text, choose from hundreds of beautiful fonts—from serif to script to fun, or upload your own! Customize your text by curving it, adding a drop shadow, or an outline.
Complete your design and share or export from the editor.
