How to make wallpaper

Pick a pic

Choose a photo that you want to make into wallpaper from PicMonkey’s royalty-free stock library, or use your own. Don't wanna use a photo? Open a blank canvas and size it for your phone's home screen dimensions. Change the color or leave it white.

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.

Finish & use your custom wallpaper!

When you've finished your design, download it, or grab it from the PicMonkey app on your phone. Set it as your new phone or laptop background. Feel a lovely sense of pride and accomplishment every time you see it!

Making wallpaper in PicMonkey

We spend a lot of time with our phones. Checking it, on average, 46 times per day, so it’s nice to have something pleasant to glance at every time you pull it out. Customized wallpaper for your lock and home screens personalize your phone — kinda like hanging art on the walls of your house, or putting a framed picture of your pet hedgehog on your desk. Wanna snazzify your smart device? We'll show you how...
