How to Make Background Designs for Your Desktop

Background Designs

The term “Personal Computer” has taken on a new meaning in recent years. While it is not unfamiliar to even the older generation, with the dawn of technology reaching its peak, there are plenty of ways to truly personalize your computer. With custom sounds and alarms as well as images and programs, you can literally shape your computer any way you see fit. One of the more popular ways of personalizing the computer is through creating background designs for the desktop. The desktop is often described as the face of any computer, so changing the desktop background to one of your own designs is a lot like giving the computer your own face (which is also possible in a literal sense). Below are just some of the ways in which you can design backgrounds for your desktop.


While it is not necessary to have extra programs installed in order to create background designs, it would be best to have a program such as Adobe Photoshop installed, as it would make designing the images far easier. Microsoft Paint can still do the job; however it lacks the filters and paintbrushes of its commercial brothers. One of the most important things you need to keep in mind is that the size of the image must be proportional to your current desktop resolution. For example, if your resolution is “800 x 600” then your image needs to be of equal size. You can make an image of your own, or simply edit an image from the Internet and even mix different background designs together (or take a picture and upload it if you own a digital camera).


Once you have completed your background designs, save the image, and then right click on your desktop. Afterwards, click “Properties” and then choose the “Desktop” tab. You can choose the image you saved using the browse option and use it as desktop wallpaper from there.
