PicsArt tutorial #1 – How to Change background

So now lets learn how to change background in PicsArt. I’ve already previewed this app, if you haven’t read it, you can check it out here PicsArt preview.

Step: 1

Choose the image of which you don’t like the background or wanna change it. I’ve chosen Hayley Williams for this. You can choose any image you want.


Step: 2

Now choose a background for your image. I’ve chose this green, white background.


Step: 3

Now open PicsArt and go to Tools >Free crop. Now using you finger, choose the area of the image you want to move to another image.

If you want your selection to be sharp and clear enough, then i’d advice you to zoom the image as much as possible.

You can travel around the image using your two fingers together.

Note: the area which you are selecting gets marked light red.


Step: 4

Now save it as clip art by tapping on “Save Clip art ” present on right top of the image.

Step: 5

Open the background image and Go to Clipart>My clipart and select your image.

Now drag the clipart anywhere in the image and save.

imageThat’s it, now you’ve got a beautiful background for your image. You can also use a stylus pen for this project, cause selection with your finger might be tricky. You can check out these sample photos below:





See how easy it is .. But you need to be sharp !

That’s all for now. I hope u guyz liked it. And if you have any questions, you can comment below and I’ll definitely check those out. Thanks !!!
