What are Edible Image Backgrounds?

If you want to dazzle your guests then you need to start off with a great background to begin with. A background or backdrop is one of the first layers you would open to start creating a beautiful edible design for your cake or cupcakes.

Typically backgrounds make for a perfect foundation to later add text or edible image elements on top. All our backgrounds are highly unique and optimised to be used with any edible printer.


Downloading and Unzipping your Edible Image Backgrounds

Once you receive your download link for your edible image background, you’ll need to click this link to download your file which will be a .ZIP type file that will need to be unzipped.ย  To unzip you will need to click on the zip file to open its contents which then need to be extracted to a folder.

The video below shows you how to open and extract your zip file for an edible background image.

NOTE : We are using a software called Winrar to unzip the files in the following video however any unzip software will do.

Opening your Edible Image Background in your Graphic Software

After you unzip your file containing all your image background you can then use them immediately by dragging and dropping them into your graphics software. In the following video, we are using Photoshop to drag in an Image background into an A4 Edible print Template we had opened earlier.

NOTE: You can use either Photoshop, Photoshop Elements or GIMP to open background image files.

Once dragged into the software, you can then resize the background to fit within your template ready for you to add other graphics like text and individual image elements.
