How to create a background.

Get ready for the festival with a new Pongal background.

Celebrate the Pongal festival with awesome wallpapers for your computer background. Try something like banana leaves, a garland of marigold flowers, sugarcane, or Laddu on a colourful background and then add a mud pot full of Pongal rice in the foreground. Another idea is to make a background with kites, and this can be done simply by starting with a blue background (the sky) before adding colourful diamond shapes. Use brushes to add texture and experiment with different looks by changing the opacity. You'll be surprised to see how easy it is to make creative backgrounds in Adobe Express.

Make a different background for each day of the celebration.

A four-day festival gives lots of scope for new backgrounds on your phone. We all spend so much time swiping and scrolling these days that it makes sense to give your device a new look as often as possible. To start, choose a wallpaper background template and duplicate the page three times. On each page, add symbols or quotes that represent the different days – cleaning and renewal, Kolam patterns, a pot of rice, Maatu, and feasts of traditional food. With such a rich festival, you won't be short of ideas, and it's easy to use Adobe Express to bring them to life.

Add a Pongal banner background to your socials.

Festivals are a great time to share happiness and you can spread the joy of this Indian harvest festival quickly by making special Pongal banner backgrounds for all your social pages. Select a template with a white background so that your illustration really stands out. From there, try a cheerful approach by featuring a pot with sugarcane or go for a bold display by using a geometric pattern that resembles a Kolam design. Keep the main elements in the centre of the space because the image might be cropped on some devices, and don't forget that your profile photo may overlap part of the banner. A real time-saver with Adobe Express is that you can make any number of celebration background banners or cover images simply by resizing your original design. Save and share the festival background images and enjoy this special time.
