How Do I Change the Background of a Frame in Figma?

Figma is a powerful and intuitive design tool that can help you create stunning visuals and graphics. With Figma, you can easily create frame backgrounds and add them to your projects.

However, you may find yourself needing to change the background of a frame in Figma. Fortunately, this process is simple and straightforward.

To start, open the project that contains the frame whose background you wish to change. Once the project is open, select the frame by clicking on it.

You will then see a ‘Background’ tab appear in the right-hand side panel. Click on this tab to access all of your available background options.

The Background tab will show you all of your currently saved backgrounds as well as any recently used ones. You can click on an existing background option or upload a new one from your computer or from an online image source such as Unsplash. Alternatively, you can also create your own custom background by using Figma’s built-in tools.

Once you’ve selected or created your desired background, click ‘Apply’ to add it to your frame. You can then adjust the size and position of the background using the handles in the corner of the frame or using the ‘Size & Position’ settings in the right-hand side panel.


Changing the background of a frame in Figma is simple and straightforward. All you have to do is select a frame, open its Background tab, choose or create an appropriate background option, and then apply it to your project.
