How to Make a Youtube Background


Everyone wants to be unique, and everyone is unique. This is why the ability to edit your channel and create a special background seems so compelling. Here you can use your imagination and make something interesting. Changing YouTube background is very easy; it will take only five minutes of your time.



Choose color

First of all, you need to choose the color of your future background. For that, simply go to Google and type "brown" (or any other color) in the search box. Choose a brown picture you like the most, right-click on it, pick location and save it. Rename it, so you can easily find it I the future.


Go to Creative Kit

After you save it on your computer, go to Creative Kit (Google+). It is a useful tool for editing and resizing your pictures. If you can't find a Creative Kit tab, you can simply go here.


Upload picture

Upload your picture, select it and choose "Edit". Press on "Creative Kit". You will see the main tools for editing pictures. You can experiment and do whatever you want. Add drawings and smaller images, signs and words, you can choose font and color. When you are done, simply save changes on your computer.


Change background

Go to YouTube. Log into your account. Press on your name / the icon in the upper right hand corner to open the menu. Choose "My Channel" in the "YouTube" column, press "Edit Channel". Press the button under the "Background" sign to download your picture. In the window that appears go to the location of your image, select it and click "Open". Wait for it to upload. You can also choose a color and avatar. When you are done, click "done editing" button in the upper right hand corner.


  • Don't forget to pick the right extension for your picture when editing it.
  • Don't be afraid to experiment when editing a picture. Try uploading different pictures - you can change your avatar and background anytime.



If you have Photoshop installed you may want to use it for creating your background (see the video above). It may take a little more time, but the result will be pretty good.
