The wallpaper is one of the personalization points of a more personal operating system. Each user wants their desktop to be unique and adapted to their tastes and needs. On the network we can find an infinity of wallpapers. However, if what we want is to use a unique wallpaper, that no one else uses, we have two options: the first one is to use a photo that we have made, and the second is to generate random wallpapers and personalizing them with the elements that we want using tools like Background Generator .
Background Generator is a program that, as its name indicates, its main purpose is to allow us to generate all kinds of funds. This software includes 7 funds generators within a single program and allows any user to generate their own wallpapers without complications and without having any knowledge about editing.
What we can do with Background Generator
Background Generator is a tool focused mainly on those users who want to have unique wallpapers on their computers. However, it is also very useful among designers, as it allows you to generate random, royalty-free backgrounds for use in any type of project. All this completely free of charge and without any kind of limitation.
The images generated by this program are 100% unique . Everything we see in it has been generated as a result of a series of algorithms that make it almost impossible for the same background to be repeated twice. In addition to allowing us to customize the background, it also has more than 100 icons that we can add to the creation, as well as different text effects to give the shape we want to the image.
The program allows us to generate funds in high definition . We can generate from HD and 4K wallpapers to backgrounds with the proportions of a smartphone or a tablet. Of course, we can also enter the dimensions we want to generate an image at that size. We can also create images with a transparent background, and even use the program to generate banners, logos or whatever we want. Thanks to random algorithms, our creations will be unique.
We can choose between 7 different styles to generate the backgrounds (and each one is fully customizable):
- Colorful: it allows us to generate funds from different geometric shapes.
- Graphics: allows you to generate random and personalized backgrounds by choosing one of the hundreds of icons available.
- Galaxy – space-based, randomized custom backgrounds with light play.
- Changing light: allows you to generate backgrounds using sources and light beams. We can see an animation and stop when we want to use it in the background.
- Polytechnic school: it allows to generate colored backgrounds with geometric effects.
- Dreamer: dreamlike backgrounds generated from bubbles and color effects.
- Stripes: colored striped backgrounds.
The generated images can be saved as PNG (to respect, for example, transparency) or as JPEG so that it occupies less and is more compatible. We choose.
How to generate unique, random and custom funds
Using this program, the truth is that it is very simple, so we will not have problems to generate our own funds. Once the program is installed, the first thing we will do is open it and we will find a window similar to the following:
The truth is that the interface is not very well maintained. Although all the options are well placed and we will not have problems using the tools, we do need a slightly more careful design.
At the top we will be able to see the different image styles. We must select the one we want to create, since according to each of them the options on the left will change.
Once the image style is chosen, on the left we can find a series of options. The first we will see will be the image size. We can choose any of the predefined sizes, or we can set the exact size we want.
We will also be able to choose the transparency, the type of color of the background that we want to generate, and then specific parameters for each of the styles. For example, icons, random algorithm variables, maximum shape sizes, and more.
When we have the background options ready, all we have to do is click on the “Generate” button. A randomly generated background will automatically appear. If we do not like it, we can press the button again to generate a new background.
When we find the perfect background, we can use the save buttons as PNG or JPEG to save the background. With it already saved we can choose to either use it as a wallpaper or import it to any other project in other programs, for example in Photoshop. Since the funds generated are free and random, we will not have rights or plagiarism problems.
Before saving the background, if we want, we can add a text to it. Under the generated image we can find different text effects that we can add to the image in question. If we select one of them we can see in the list of parameters on the left some new sections with other parameters.
We can customize the text as we want. To each style we can change the font, size, position, style, margins … anything we want. And if we do not like how the text is next to the image we can always generate a new background.
This program is completely free, and we can download it to our computer from the following link . It is important to note that it is only available for Windows systems, so neither from macOS nor from Linux can we use this wallpaper generator.
We can download a normal version of this program, which we must install in Windows to be able to use it, or opt for the portable version. Neither of them has ads or tries to install any kind of unwanted software on our PC. It is a 100% reliable program, and it perfectly fulfills its purpose.
If we prefer, we can also use its web version, which is available here .
Alternatives to Background Generator
In addition to this simple program to generate random wallpapers, we are also going to find other alternatives online that will allow us to give our desktop a unique touch.
Wallpaper Engine is one of the best known Windows customization programs that we can find that allows us to use animated backgrounds on the Windows desktop. This program is compatible with a wide variety of animated backgrounds, including 3D and 2D animations, which we can manually add to the program or download from its own “store”. We can also put web pages, videos and even applications as wallpaper.
Another program similar to the previous one whose main purpose is to allow us to create fully customizable and updated live wallpapers in real time. We can configure animations, videos, websites, clocks and much more as a Windows wallpaper. Its programming makes it stand out its low consumption of RAM and CPU memory, so it will not slow down the PC when using its animated backgrounds.
