All patterns can be generated in SVG / APNG / GIF formats. PNG sequence or static PNG are also available. To choose the right format for yourself, you should check the compatibility and quality of these file format before using them.
Provides the best compatibility, while big in size and low in quality. supports only up to 256 colors at most.
Supported by all browsers, even by old browser such as IE5 or Netscape.
Gives the best quality and file size but is CPU-intensive to render. Animation is more likely to lag when browser is busy
Animated SVG is not supported by IE or Edge.
Provides similar quality to SVG and is supported by most modern browsers, including Microsoft Edge.
However, its file size is proportional to image size, and isn't supported by older browser like IE.
seamless repeatable patterns built for animation
Loading Patterns is loading.io's animated pattern generator that makes tiled images for using as texture, image pattern or in backgrounds of app, video or website. It can also be used to fill shapes, icons or progress bars.
All background patterns generated in loading.io are seamless repeatable, either in static or animated format.
This significantly reduces the size of animated image, and is perfect for looping as background tile in any place with variant size.
Tiles are all designed based on lossless vector image format SVG with the capability to generate to other formats including GIF, PNG/APNG and PNG sequence.
SVG format keeps the highest quality of images against resizing while also optimizes the file size and possibility for flexible retouching.
Animatable & Customizable
Loading.io empowers the background patterns with various types of animation which could be customized with loading.io's pattern editor.
All patterns are pre-designed but can still be customized according to your need.
All Patterns in their static form are released under Loading.io BY License ( similar to CC-BY ), so you can download these free patterns and use their static form in your projects with proper attribution; additionally, we also provide pro features for building animated images. You can subscribe and upgrade to pro account to unlock the animation features, or purchase per item to unlock the features only for the item you need.
If you don't want to attribute, we also provide options for you to pay to remove attribution. To learn more about loading.io license, please check our license document.
HD Live Background
Loading Patterns mainly focuses on providing SVG-based, seamless repeatable animated background patterns, so the size of image might be limited by the performance and complexity of the SVG itself.
Hopefully, we launched an experimental service "makebackground.io" which generates high resolution ( up to 1920 x 1280 ), high quality minimalist style live backgrounds / wallpapers, with png or mp4 output up to 8 sec animation. Here are some samples of the backgrounds provided:
makebackground.io are still in its alpha stage, but we would like to keep working on it or even integrate it with loading.io if it gets some tractions in the future. If you want to take a look of it, you can follow the button below to go to makebackground.io, and leave your comment or suggestion there. :)
Any questions or suggestion? Feel free to leave comment here. :)
turning off the edge smoothing option might help
By its design, GIF is quite limited in quality especially with transparency on. If you got GIF with colored border around edges of generated image, you can turning off Edge Smoothing option and try again.
This option will give crispy edges around generated image, but might lead to pixelated result, so please use it at your discretion. For more information, check our guide about improving GIF image quality.
