A lot of us don't like having a busy wallpaper on our phones, but that doesn't mean you have to seek out blurry wallpapers on Google. MacSparky's David Sparks points out that it's easy enough to make your own. Sparks has a guide to use Pixelmator to blur an image, but really any old photo editing app that has a blur function will do the trick (Pixlr seems like a solid option on Android and Snapseed for iOS will do it as well if you're looking for free options). Sparks grabs an image of BB8, blurs it out then sets it for his background. The end result is a wallpaper that's not busy, but still expresses the image he wanted it to. If you've been struggling to find a wallpaper you like, this is a pretty simple way to make your own.
