How to make wallpaper

Pick a pic

Choose a photo that you like from PicMonkey’s stock library, or use your own.

Customize your graphics

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.

Add text to your design

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.
