backdrop designer

With Backdrop Designer, load in any of 600 different pre-made backdrops with one click. Then modify with color, lighting, and shadows to create your own unique backdrop.

Choose from premade digital backdrops.

Simply by mixing colors and depth, Backdrop Designer will create a beautiful digital background. Just pick a Texture preset from an infinite variation of colors and patterns. Then add a Shadow preset to simulate drapery folds with shadows and distortions.

Seamless & independent.
Backdrop Designer graphics are ‘resolution independent’. This means you can apply Backdrop Designer to a file of any pixel resolution. The digital backdrop will take on the physical dimensions and the pixel-based resolution of your Adobe Photoshop file.

Whether you apply Backdrop to a 4 x 6 inch, 72 ppi file or to a 12 x 20 foot, 300 ppi file, your graphic will look sharp and color perfect.

Use for photography portraits.

Backdrop Designer gives photographers a flexible, inexpensive way to put beautiful backgrounds behind their clients and models. Backdrop Designer gives you hundreds of premade digital backdrops to choose from. These presets can be combined or modified to create, literally, thousands of variations. You can even use Adobe Photoshop to create more variations. It’s a very powerful way of working.

In fact, the product was conceived at a Photoshop / Photography trade show. Digital Anarchy was showing off our masking software, Primatte Chromakey, and many photographers said, ‘Wow, it would be great to digitally add in my muslin drapery after using Primatte.” Voila! The idea for Backdrop Designer was born.

Use for corporate presentations.

Have you ever wanted to create an interesting digital background for Powerpoint presentation, but lacked the time that would take? Of course you have! Backdrop Designer is a simple way to quickly design compelling corporate backgrounds in Adobe Photoshop. Choosing a digital background for your presentation is important since that image will set the tone and look.
