Scratch allows you to change the area behind your logo called the backdrop.

From rainforests to reefs, pollution and climate changes affects environments all over the world.

In this video, you will add a backdrop to your logo that shows an environment that needs protection.

Find backdrops in the Scratch library, or download and add one you find on the internet.

If you do not know whether you’re allowed you to download images, check with an adult.

To add a backdrop from the Scratch library, select “choose backdrop from Library.”

Select a backdrop, and click OK.

To add a backdrop from the internet, first find and download an image.

Go to and select images.

Search for an image.

To find an image that fits the Scratch stage, select “tools” and change the size to 480 by 360.

To find images you can use in Scratch, search for “labeled for reuse with modification.”

Once you find an image, download it to your computer.

If you don’t know how to download on your computer, ask a neighbor.

Then, return to Scratch.

Select “upload backdrop from file,” and select the file you downloaded.

To resize an image, click, hold, and drag a rectangle around it.

Then click, hold, and drag the edges to the appropriate size.

Click the backdrop in the menu to see how it appears on the stage.

Great job!

Now it’s your turn: Select a backdrop from the library, or add an image from the internet.

Once you finish, return to this page to select another video.
