How to change your MacBook Pro’s background

 

If you’re anything like me, you’re probably tired of looking at the same background image on your MacBook Pro day in and day out. Well, there’s good news! In this blog post, I’m going to show you how to change your background in just a few simple steps.

 

How to change your MacBook Pro’s background

 

If you’re bored of your MacBook Pro’s current background and want to change it to something new, you can do so easily. Not only can you select from a wide range of pre-loaded background images, but you can also use your own pictures. Here’s how:

Open System Preferences from the Dock or the Apple menu.
Click Desktop & Screen Saver.
To select a new background image from Apple’s collection, click the Desktop Pictures folder in the left column.
To use one of your own pictures, click the My Pictures folder. Then select the album that contains the picture you want to use and click Choose.
If you want to use a different image file type, such as a PNG file, first open it in Preview and then select it in the My Pictures folder.
Drag the corner of the image to resize it, if necessary.
When you’re done, close System Preferences.

 

How to find the perfect background for your MacBook Pro

 

Your MacBook Pro’s background is one of the first things people see when they look at your computer, so it’s important to choose something that reflects your personality and style. Whether you want a simple solid color or a complex image, there are a few things to keep in mind when choosing the perfect background for your MacBook Pro.

Size and resolution: The size and resolution of your background image need to be just right, or it will look pixelated or distorted. For the best results, choose an image that’s at least 2,560 by 1,600 pixels.

File format: JPEG, PNG, and TIFF files work best as background images. You can also use GIF files, but they might not animate the way you want them to.

Colors: If you want a solid color background, make sure to choose a color that’s easy on the eyes and won’t cause eyestrain. Black, white, and gray are always safe bets.

Now that you know what to look for in a background image, here are some places to find great ones.

Apple’s default backgrounds: If you can’t find anything you like elsewhere, Apple’s default backgrounds are always a safe bet. To access them, open System Preferences > Desktop & Screen Saver > Desktop. Then click on the “Stretched” option in the left sidebar and scroll through the thumbnails until you find something you like.

Unsplash: Unsplash is a great resource for high-quality, free photos. To findbackground images specifically, try searching for “background” or “wallpaper.” Just make sure to check the license before using an image — some of them require attribution.
Pixabay: Pixabay is another site with plenty of free (and high-quality) photos to choose from. Like Unsplash, you can search specifically for “background” or “wallpaper” images. And again, be sure to check the license before using an image from Pixabay.
