These backgrounds are for use with the Textgram app for Android. They are 612 pixels squared as they should be, and either dark or light enough support appropriately shaded text for high contrast and ease of reading.
The backgrounds were made from some free wallpapers I found in various places on the Internet. I picked them out as I thought were potentially usable, cropped them, adjusted tone intensity and resized them so they could be suitable for good Textgram backgrounds. Please come back here for more interesting backgrounds besides these abstract ones in various colours. They serve a purpose of not evoking certain sentiments when you don’t want to have to search to find the right theme for a quote, and also just lets one focus on the quote. But if you want things like birds, skies, oceans and stuff, they’ll be coming. It takes me more time to find suitable ones to convert for Textgram purposes. Most aren’t suitable to be putting text on in any easy to read and nice looking manner.

Textgram is the best Android picture quote maker I have found that’s free, loaded with flexible options and minimal ads. Way better than Instaquote and Jusgramm, which seem to be the other two big apps for the same purposes. Ratings and downloads also seem to agree with my opinion.
There are free backgrounds packages with Textgram, but I can’t seem to get them to load right. Still, there are only a handful for free. If you’re going to be making lots of picture quotes like I plan to be, and want variety, they aren’t going to be enough for you. As a result, I have started making my own backgrounds from wallpapers found on the Internet, usually darkening or lightening them up quite a bit so as to be appropriate for crisp text overlay. They weren’t made for this purpose, originally, so it’s not surprising they’re usually not ideal as they were.
It’s becoming a trend for Super Bowl commercials to be released online before the Super Bowl, supposedly to “engage” fans rather than just entertaining them for a few moments during the game until the next great commercial comes along and you lose all your attention span. That, plus more people are “watching TV” on mobile devices all the time. This year, here are some of the commercials released early. There are some great ones, and some just weird ones. See who got it right… Continue reading
