Scroll through the pre-made patterns backgrounds and select one that you like. Once you do so, the pattern will be applied to your background. Adjust the pattern opacity as needed.

Select None to remove the patterns from your background.

You can also apply patterns over a gradient, images, videos and animations.

Add Gradient Background:
