Step 1: Upload Screenshot
Capture a screenshot of your current lockscreen to serve as a template. Open Picsart and upload your screenshot by selecting “Draw on Photo” from the Draw section of the main menu.
Step 2: Choose a New Background
Choose your own lockscreen background by adding a new layer and uploading a photo. Make sure the layer is on top even though this will be your background.
Step 3: Mark Buttons
Reduce the opacity of your top layer to 50% so that you can see the screenshot of your lockscreen behind. Draw dots on the center of each of your lockscreen’s buttons. Then, delete the screenshot layer, and return the top layer’s opacity to 100%.
Step 4: Add Clipart Buttons
Confirm your drawing to open the Editor. Select the clipart and add as many clipart images as you have buttons. Position clipart images over each dot. Save and set new image as lock screen!
