Quickly Create Beautiful Abstract Wallpapers for iOS 7

Check tutorial of How to Quickly Create Beautiful Abstract Wallpapers for iOS 7

So after a lot of requests from our users here is a guide about How to Quickly Create Beautiful Abstract Wallpapers for iOS 7.

Many have found that the overall look of iOS 7 largely depends on the device’s wallpaper, and a good or bad wallpaper can make or break the look of things along with its overall usability, especially for the home screen. As it turns out, some of the best looking wallpapers on iOS 7 are very abstract, multicolored, blurry images, and that’s what we’re going to focus on here. I’ve perfected some sort of quick formula for creating beautiful wallpapers in iOS 7 right on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, using an excellent free photo editing app called Snapseed. Snapseed is really great at making very nice, professional looking photo adjustments on the go, but we’re going to use it to go the other way; makes a bad photo look even worse, creating an abstract blurry image that is actually an excellent background.

Before doing anything else you need to download Snapseed from the App Store for iOS, it is free and works fine on any iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The Snapseed UI is a bit strange at first, but after a minute or two of playing, you’ll figure it out and be a master. It is very gesture based, with a tap and hold allows for filter adjustment options, and swipes left and right to increase or decrease the filter strength. We’re not doing a general tutorial but don’t worry, for these purposes you will soon find out.

1: Take a horrible photo

Are you bad at photography? Me too, so you and I are going to be great at this. Yes, seriously, break out of iOS Camera and take a horrible photo, the worst you can imagine. My preference trick because taking a bad photo has started swaying the iPhone (or iPad, but don’t accidentally hit someone with it please) back and forth over your mismatched hyper-color socks, a messy tangle of multicolored computer cables, or your colleagues look at the next desk while he tells you to stop, otherwise he will report you to HR. Press the shutter button While the camera moving, the result will be a faded garbage photo that you normally throw away immediately. Yep, that’s perfect, you’re such a good artist. Okay if you’re not sure what we mean by a bad photo, here are two examples of horrible photos that quickly turned into great backgrounds.

This is a blurry photo of a few USB cables, an iPhone charger, a MacBook, and a Starbucks gift card. Looks awful, shouldn’t you be ashamed? Bingo, it has become a picture for this assignment and a great wallpaper!

Before and after making wallpaper

Or how about this terribly blown out overexposed photo of the morning sun with a few out of focus trees thrown in and then flipped over on its side. It hurts the eyes, an absolutely horrible shame of pixels. You’ve been fired from earlier I mean hired because this piece of trash became a beautiful Picasso wallpaper:

Turn a bad photo into a great background

How often do you get an assignment with the first step ‘doing something wrong’? This is a bad photographer’s paradise, right? I mean it, the more valuable the photo, the better the results. Just about any bad photo will do, but try to get some contrasting color elements and faded in there, or not, just make it look bad.

2: Open the bad image in Snapseed and adjust it badly

The first thing I like to do is crank up the saturation and adjust the colors, then blur it a little. Snapseed makes this a breeze:

  • Turn to vertical: First of all, if you didn’t take a vertical photo, rotate it very quickly, then do that with the Photos app or use the ‘Straighten’ option in Snapseed to rotate it 90 ° and set it vertically
  • Tweak colors: Tap on ‘Match Image’ button and use the “White Balance” option to adjust the bad image into a color scheme that you want to use as the basis for the background, then use “Saturation” to slightly increase the intensity of the color
  • To fade: If the bad image is not blurry enough, use Snapseed’s “Tilt Shift” option to make it very blurry, just throw the focal point to the other side of the image and rotate up the blur to 100% – go ahead and apply the Tilt Shift filter two or three times if you think your photo isn’t blurry enough

Your phenomenal artistic progress will look something like this:

Still looks pretty awful, huh? Yes, and you are almost done!

3: Use Snapseed Retrolux to jump into Abstraction-ville

Retrolux is a hipster paradise filter within Snapseed that aims to make photos look like they came from a broken 70s Polaroid cameracomplete with severe overexposure, textures and light leaks. It looks really awful, which means it’s perfect for what we want to do here.

  • Choose the “RetroluxFilter option and tap the star icon to access the preset options
  • Choose a preset and start hitting the little arrow button to switch between different styles until you find one that goes in the right (or wrong) direction, focus on the crazy colors and light leaks
  • Now start adjusting that particular filter; pendulum up the light leaks, remove the scratches if they are not your thing or increase them if you like textures, increase the “Style Strength”, play with saturation, and in no time you should be looking good
  • Create abstract backgrounds

  • When you are satisfied, tap the> arrow button, then the share button in the corner to save your wallpaper

Save and set the wallpaper

Wait what, what just happened? That ugly piece of garbage is suddenly a beautiful abstract multi-colored wallpaper, just like you would find in a collection of wallpaper collection of digital abstract beauty. And you made it all yourself, you artist. Give yourself a star sticker, Pablo.

4: Done, set your wallpaper!

With all the hard work over in a total of one minute, you’re ready to temporarily retire from your newfound career as an abstract artist and use that beautiful masterpiece as a backdrop (assuming some glorious patron of the arts doesn’t) buy it first right?). Do that in the normal way, via Settings> Wallpapers & brightness, or via Photos> tap the photo> choose Use as wallpaper.

Looks good, doesn’t it? Here are the two images used in the bad photo example that are nice as a background. Shed a tear in awe of their beauty.

Do it yourself awesome iOS wallpapers

Okay, you’re on your own now, take some awful pictures and have fun!
