How To Create Your Own Custom Themes In Gmail
The built-in image catalog includes a variety of backgrounds — from cityscapes to nature categories. But you can also upload your own photos and customize them into themes.
Sign in to your Gmail on the desktop (Mac, Windows, or Linux). From the quick settings menu, launch the panel with the collection of pre-installed themes. Next, hit View All, and a window titled “Pick your theme” pops up with dozens of themes. From here, C=choose one of the pre-designed themes. Or, tap the More Images button to reveal hundreds of high-quality backgrounds. Turn your attention to the three gray icons next to the cancel and Save buttons when you’ve selected one. They control the text, vignette filter, and blur settings, respectively. You can change the text background from Light to Dark for better readability. Note that tweaking the Vignette filter darkens the corners. Lastly, adjusting the blur level makes the background less distracting.
If you want to use a custom or personal photo for the background image, first upload it to Google Photos (via Google Support). Locate the My photos button on the left corner of the “Pick your theme” window. Next, in the “Select your background image” section, pick a photo you’ve already uploaded to Google Photos. You can then repeat steps 5-8 to change the Vignette, blur, and text background settings. When you’re done, hit Save to apply the new custom Gmail theme.
