GMail Colors


This is a small app that generates a 1600 x 1400 picture with a single HEX color, which can be used as a background picture for GMail.

You can also make your own backgrounds using the following pattern :

How to use :

Go to Gmail, click on the Settings button (Gear icon) and then click on “Themes”:

screenshot-gmail-colors
Then choose one of the “Custom Themes” (I personally like the Light one) :

screenshot-gmail-2

 

A popup should appear (or if you have already used Custom themes before, you should click on “Select a background image”) :

screenshot-gmail

You then choose “Paste a URL” as shown on the picture above, and paste the link you copied from the colors section above.

 

PS : Keep in mind when choosing a color that Google adds a gradient layer on top of the background, so the result sometimes isn’t exactly what you were expecting.
