Free Textgram Backgrounds for Android – Abstract Red

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.

“Red shirts get killed. Green shirts get lucky.”
