Adding background to your screenshot

One of the best ways to make a boring screenshot stand-out is by adding an eye-catching background to it

Pika's screenshot editor lets you add 3 types for backgrounds to your screenshots:

  • Gradients
  • Solid Colors
  • Image Backgrounds

In the sidebar of all tools and templates, you'll see an option labeled "Background". That option opens a popup with 3 tabs, one for each type of background setting. You can switch to any of the tabs to see more options for that background setting

Each of these background options are customizable, and works with all tools and templates in Pika


Pika background options

You can select a gradient of colors from the list. These gradients are thoughtfully selected, very natural, easy on the eyes and very appealing

You can also change the direction of the gradient as per your liking. Pro users can select custom colors for the gradient

Pro users can also select from a bunch of beautiful images. These images are carefully picked to enhance your screenshots appeal and make them more professional

These background images include Mesh gradients, abstract arts, patterns etc. all of which are perfect to elevate your screenshot game

In addition to that, you can also add your own custom background image from your system
