How do I add a background in a design?

When you first create a new design, you’ll see a plain white page sized according to whichever design type you selected. You can add a background to your design to replace the default plain white backdrop with another color or a festive pattern. 

01. Select Background

Click the Background tab. On top of the background pane you’ll see a color palette featuring some basic colors, as well as colors you’ve recently used in your design.

Click on any of the colored buttons to fill your design’s background. You can also click the add new color button (+) to create a custom background color by adjusting the color wheel and value slider. 

02. Choose a color

Below the color palette, you’ll see many different background elements you can try out with your design.

There are two types of background elements: photo backgrounds and illustration backgrounds. Illustration backgrounds are the beautiful patterns and textures that appear at the top of the background pane. They’re free to use, and you can try them out simply by clicking on one. 

You can also customize the color of an illustration background. After choosing a background, try clicking on one of the color buttons in the color palette to see the pattern in a different color. 

03. Select a photo

Scroll further down the background pane, and you’ll see photo backgrounds. These high-quality photos offer a wide variety of different textures for your designs, though you can’t customize the colors. You can sample any photo background by clicking on its picture in the background pane. 

04. Select an image

You can also use any photo element from our image library or your own uploads as a background.

To use any photo element as a background, click on it in the search pane or drag it into your design. Select the element and then, by clicking and dragging the resize anchors, stretch it until it completely fills your design. Once you’ve filled the entire page, we’ll automatically move it into the background and place it underneath all of your other elements.
