I love to add photos to my gmail backgrounds (see below) and this one was inspired by a post from my friend, Katelyn. A friend of a friend, that is.
I’ve personally been adding photos to my gmail backgrounds for years. I’ve even created and shared my own background images and uploaded them to different social networks like Flickr. Now I want to see if I can make it easier for you and others like you to add your own.
I started a gmail background gallery a while ago. I had created a gallery for my wife and I for our wedding. One of the things I wanted to do was to create some backgrounds for Gchat and social networks. I also wanted my Gchat account to be one of the most popular on the site. If you are a Gchat or social network user, you might want to consider adding your own photos and backgrounds into the gallery.
First you need to create a gmail background gallery. Go to the “Gmail” link on our website, then choose your “Gmail” profile picture, and click “Add”. You will be prompted to upload your photo, and you are then prompted to enter the width and height of your photo. Once you’ve done that, click “Add to Gallery” and you will be taken to the gallery page, where you can add your photo.
This is a pretty basic process, but it is the first time I’ve seen people add an image to their gmail account gallery. I guess the reason for that is because they’re not using the default gmail style and they want to add their own. I don’t know how helpful it’ll be, but it’s certainly better than the default settings for most people.
The default settings are fine for most people, but for those who use gmail and dont like the default settings, this can be a hassle. With the default settings, your photos have no way of being seen by anyone but yourself. But with the new settings, your photos have a default size of 640×480 pixels. If youre an editor and dont like that, you could just change it to 640×480 pixels, but Ive never seen anyone do that.
When gmail was introduced, I was amazed by how easily I could change my photos into a custom background. But the new gmail is now full of third-party apps that you can download. One of my favorites is PhotoPilot, which allows you to use your photos as a background for emails. But for those who do not use photopilot, there are some excellent apps out there for adding your photos to your gmail background.
I have been using PhotoPilot for a couple of years. The site is well organized into categories including “Backgrounds”, “Photos”, and “Gadgets”. It is so easy and convenient to use. I love it.
You can use PhotoPilot or any other third-party app to add photos to your gmail background. You can either add them manually, or choose the PhotoPilot “Add Photo Wizard” to do it for you.
The Add Photo Wizard is very easy to use. You can choose your photo size, if you want to keep it small, or change the background color and choose your font. After you have selected your photo, you can then add a caption, a description, a link, or a photo URL.
