Upload a Custom Photo for Your Planner

If you change your theme often, you might want to consider dragging your favorite images to your desktop or creating a folder to store them for easy access.

  1. Select Theme & Colors from the Settings drop-down menu, located at the top right of the Homeschool Planet page.
  2. There are seven color template options (used for frames, text, striping, and pop-ups).  Simply click on the selection of the background you prefer.
  3. Select the desired photo from your computer menu and crop as needed.
  4. Select Save crop followed by Save. You can adjust and change photos as often as you like by following the steps above.
  5. Other family members who have been given their own login can customize their themes by following the same steps.
