Tiled Backgrounds Designer

Why spend hours searching the Web for free background tiles for your Web pages when you can make your own? Not only is it free, but the application is very easy to use as well!

When you start, you’ll be on the Image tab. Here you can select the image you want tiled on your background. There are tons of different shapes to choose from. Some examples are hearts, stars, swirls and trees.

Once you’ve selected an image, you can start customizing how the end product will look. Head on over to the Colors tab and select the colors for your image. You have two color choices to make: what color your foreground will be and what color the background will be. It’s as easy as that!

The color selector is set on the foreground by default, but you can click on the color window next to it to choose a different shade. To change the color, use the rainbow slider next to the color window. You can then click on the background color to start working on that.

Once you’ve selected your colors, you can go over to the Canvas tab. That’s where you can select the texture for your background color. You can also change the opacity of the image you selected in the first step. You can make it more or less visible as you wish.

Now, head on over to the Rotate tab! That section will let you rotate the image you selected into the position you want. Once everything is positioned and colored how you want it, click on the Apply Background link on the right side of the page. That allows you to preview the image you’ve made for your background.

Under the Apply Background link, you will also find links to Download Your Image, which allows you to save it to your computer. You can also save it to My Patterns if you want. To do that, you’ll need to register, which is really easy to do. Simply fill out the form.

Now, instead of searching the Web for tiled backgrounds, you can just make your own here. Check it out!
