While our phones might not look too different, you still can change the lock screen wallpaper of your mobile phone to allow you to express your style and preferences. While there are many free options to choose from, the biggest problems are that phones come in many different sizes and outstanding style. sometimes the images you find online may not fit on your phone, which means it will be difficult for the entire image to be properly displayed on your phone.

How to Design an Outstanding Lock Screen Wallpaper?

1. The consideration before designing lock screen wallpaper

First, let’s talk about the mechanics of wallpapers and make sure we design a wallpaper that works well with your phone and won’t cause any eye strain problems to you. Let’s get started.

  • Size

Like I’ve said, phone screens come in a lot of different sizes, which means sometimes images can’t be displayed in all their glory as a wallpaper, which can make it difficult to find the perfect one for you and your phone. So, how can you make sure you have the properly sized image for your photo? You can check your screen size in the Settings on your phone. You can also just come to Fotor and use our template which will fit your phone.

  • Eye Strain

One of the newest phenomena that many suffer from in this digital age is eye strain. Eye strain is caused by hours of staring at a screen without any breaks. It can be made worse due to the screen emitting blue light. And most screens do emit this blue light. The shortest wavelengths in the visible light spectrum are not kind to our eyes, so that means whenever you pick a wallpaper, try to pick one that doesn’t have blue as a primary color to save your eyes from having to look at the screen.

Sometimes you feel weary after sleeping (or not sleeping enough) and need something to help motivate you to continue. An inspirational message is a perfect way to help you dig deep down and keep moving forward. You could put it up on the wall as a poster, or you could put it on your phone!

  • Scenes and Landscapes

The third type or wallpaper we’ll look at are those of scenes and landscapes. When looking for good ones of these, I always look for strong contrast, which can really make the background pop. I also look for those that look very surreal, as if they’re from another world.
