Opening up an image in the Wallpaper Editor
In order to actually begin, you must launch Wallpaper Engine and after selecting a Monitor to add apply the wallpaper to (if you use dual monitors, but I digress), you must click on the blue “Wallpaper Editor” button on the bottom left.
Then, you must click “Create Wallpaper – Drop wallpaper file here…”
Insert an image from your computer.
Name your project
Scheme color – select a color you think will fit well with your wallpaper.
Resize image – Not recommended but go ahead and choose your monitor’s resolution only if your image does not fit it’s resolution.
Congrats! Your image is ready to be edited.
Editing your image (Effects)
Now, you can add effects.
On the right hand side, if you scroll you will see “Effects.”
Select Add if desired.
Choose between the different effects – play around with these, it’s too much to explain.
When you add an effect you will automatically be redirected to edit it.
Just to clear things up, in order to go back to the previous page where you could add more effects and whatnot, you simply need to click “Layers” right here.
Now here, you can make changes to your effect and play around with the settings.
To close up the “Effects” portion of this guide, in order to remove an effect you must go back to the previous page by clicking “layers” (as stated earlier), look for your unwanted effect under the “Effects” tab like before, and click the red X.
You can of course add multiple effects.
Applying your Wallpaper!
In order to save the changes made to your Wallpaper, click “File” on the top left, and click “Save.” Your changes have been saved to the project you made.
Oh, your wallpaper isn’t showing on your desktop yet?
Click “File” again and select “Apply Wallpaper.”
Boom! You’ve added effects to an image and made it your wallpaper!
Thank you for reading this guide! I hope you learned how to add effects to and edit your own basic image on Wallpaper Engine!
This is not a full guide on how to use Wallpaper Engine – just on how to create a project (image/set of images) and add effects to it/edit and apply to your PC desktop. If you want a full, in-depth guide, check out a YouTube vid! Thanks.
