How to Change Background Color in Unfold App

Unfold is a stylish looking app for creating beautiful Instagram Stories. Everything from the interface to the features has a very minimalist clean look and there are all kinds of frameworks and settings you can use to make your Story eye-catching.

When it comes to changing the background color of the frames, the options available may not be as wide as you might expect, but the app still offers a good variety. Come along as we explain how to change the background color.

Changing the Frame Color

As with all other Unlock options, changing the background color is quick and easy. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Choose your frame and add the photo you want to post.
  2. In the lower right corner, tap on the pentagon-shaped icon and you’ll see new options pop up.
    Open Frame
  3. Tap the drop icon at the bottom right of the frame to access the background color options. Currently, you can choose from 6 different colors in addition to the default white.
    Open Colors
  4. Tap the color you want to change the background to and save the picture.

As you can see, this is easy enough, but the number of options will blow your mind. Guess what if you want to have more options? Try another app, what else?

There are too many to list, but here are perhaps the two best alternatives (mind for simplicity).


Preview is a great app to customize the colors of your Instagram Story. It offers a wide variety of color options to express your creativity and make your photos stand out.

If you want to create a custom background color to add images, emojis and/or stickers, here’s what you need to do:

  1. Open a photo and select the pen tool.
  2. Select your preferred color from the bottom of the screen.

  3. Press and hold anywhere on the screen to apply the color.

Another thing you can do is create a clear color and use it as an overlay. Tap the clear pen tool (right next to the regular pen tool), select the color, and hold to apply.

There are other options to choose from, such as changing the text color, adding multiple color layers, and other tweaks.

The app is available for both iOS and Android, and best of all, it’s free to use. There are also in-app purchases that can really unlock things for those who make it for a living. Most people will just be happy with the free app, but your mileage may vary.


Canva is perhaps the best name for those who want to create compelling Instagram Stories. Canva makes it easy to create Story templates that you can use for branding, making it the go-to app for many users with their own brand they want to stick with.

Apart from everything the app can do, setting your Story’s background color is child’s play. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Select from home screen Your story to create a blank template.
  2. Choose one of the available colors or + Sign to use yours.

  3. Choose your custom color, then Completed. If you have in mind, you can also use the custom field to enter the color code.

This actually gives you unlimited color options to play with to your heart’s content. Of course, Canva can do much more for those who need a truly unique template. The app is free to use and is available for both Android and iOS, so we’ll let you explore all its options.

It’s Time to Be Creative

As you can see, Unfold doesn’t offer many customization options in the background. It’s all about creating minimalist Stories that don’t get in the way of the stories, so don’t go overboard with the colors available.

If you need more than that, Preview and Canva are great alternatives to explore. Both apps allow you to customize the background color to your liking and add other elements to the background. If you’re doing this for a living, you might want to check out either one.
