What Is a Background Texture?

Texture is the feel, appearance, or consistency of a surface or a subject. When you use a background texture on images and designs, you're adding a visual element that adds to your project's depth and perceived feeling. Adding a textured background can make your flat design stand out and look almost 3D. Or, textures can be applied much more subtly to give the appearance of being printed on canvas, paper, metal, and more. With BeFunky's Photo Editor, you have total control over the amount of texture you add to your project!

Give Your Photos Character

Background textures can be anything from subtle embellishment to the centerpiece of your design. Create a “printed on canvas” look with our Fabric Textures, add a vintage feel with some Scratches, or take your project to a new artistic level with Paint. Whatever feel you're looking to accomplish, BeFunky has the perfect texture background for your project.
