Backgrounds... how to make them


#1

Does anyone know how to make custom backgrounds? I want to learn!!! And I would absolutely love for someone to tell me…

You can use a paint tool to help. You can copy a image from google or any website of your choosing. You can make it your own by erasing what you don’t need and adding your own style to it.
Here’s an example of what I did:

You can’t make backgrounds for mobile creations, sorry… Maybe you could make a new topic on it and ask episode for that function on mobile… xxx

You can use autodesk sketchbook or ibis paint x
Befunky works on mobile as well

When on mobile most people use like ibis paint x or drawing fest stuff like that and it’s hard so I don’t bug with those, when on mobile I have these apps, (yes they are in ABC order)


I use befunky and Pixlr for adding text and effects to photos. I use recolor to change color on a photo from the web. I use google photos so that my mobile photos are on my computer and you can change scenes to night time. I use Watermarks so I can add my watermark to sample photos. And I use blue to blur some words out so they will be approved by episode like if it has words and it franchises a shop or if I want to add text I use blue, which also has special effects! Like there was a nasty concrete flooring on a background I was doing for someone and it made the illusion of it being nice!
