Generate a Background Design Using AI

The right background can make all the difference.

Whether you need it for a website, social media, wallpaper or a marketing…

backgrounds are more than just an image,

because they set the tone and context for the entire visual.

A good premium stock photo site is where you’ll probably end up…

but, sites like these require purchasing licenses.

This can make the cost of 1 image range from one $ to several hundred dollars.

Not to mention the complicated license which takes a lawyer to understand!

But here is a better solution – Enter AI-generated backgrounds.

With tools like Pincel AI, you can generate any background you want without the hassle and expense of traditional stock photo sites.

There are 3 easy options for generating your own and unique backgrounds.

AI generated background. Prompt: background design, large blue square shapes, abstract, blue glow, bokeh 4K, wallpaper.

Option 1: Generate from Text Description

First, you can create a background simply by providing a text description.

This technique is called txt2img in AI.

Instead of the usual prompts for pretty girls, cats or anime, you can describe any background design or wallpaper you need.

This method allows for endless creativity and styles.

Here are a few examples:

Option 2: Replicate Image from Photo Reference

Alternatively, you can also replicate a background from a photo reference.

This is ideal when found a background you love,

but simply can’t use it due to copyright issues.

With Pincel AI, you can recreate a similar background,

this makes it uniquely yours and also copyright free.

Simply upload the reference image to Pincel AI Replicator,

describe the image (or the new version you envision)

and Pincel will generate a similar, yet distinctively unique background.

With the replicator tool, you can recreate or reimagine a background into a similar image, by changing it with a prompt. The similarity to the original is controlled by a slider.

Option 3: AI Background Replacer

Why create a separate background, when you can also let AI add a background directly to the image you want?

First upload your image and the background is automatically removed.


Then describe a new background with a prompt.

A new background is generated to match the photo.

The main benefit is that generative AI will blend in the background more seamlessly with the original photo.

This process also saves more time in your workflow.

The background tool can also handle easier tasks such as creating a transparent, white or black background.

Why Pincel AI is Better Than Classic Stock Sites?

Pincel AI stands out in several ways compared to regular stock photo sites.

โœ… Instant results

It’s even faster to generate a background design using Pincel (compared to browsing endless sites)

because an average render with the txt2img tool takes about 1-2 seconds.

โœ… You own the images

Instead of purchasing a license to use an image owned by someone else, you actually own the image yourself, when you create it with Pincel.

You can then license and resell it yourself.

โœ… Images are cheaper

Stock photo sites are costly…

and I mean crazy expensive ๐Ÿคฏ

For example, a single photo on Getty images can cost thousands of dollars ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ

Pricing on Getty images is crazy… however with Pincel, the cost of a unique photo is 2 cents.

โœ… Easy customization

While stock sites limit you to what’s available in their library, Pincel AI allows you to create exactly what you envision.

This is done by allowing you to modify images using generative fill (aka AI photo editing)

or specific features like clothes swap or face swap.

The main benefit of AI is that you can literally create any style you need, from vector, 3d to photorealistic backgrounds. Prompt used above: clean corporate background, empty room.

๐Ÿ›‘ No More Stock Shocks!

The time of classic stock photos is over…

forget about the same generic images that everyone are using.

It’s time to create your own unique stock photos and backgrounds with AI.

With Pincel, the only limit is your imagination (or credit balance).

By leveraging AI, you not only save money but also become more creative.

Give Pincel AI a try and create just the background you need!
