If you have a design with an Instant Background and you move a foreground object, it can cause a blurring effect. To fix the background, use the Regenerate background feature.

For instructions, select the link for your device:


On iPhone, iPad, and Android

To regenerate an Instant Background on an iPhone, iPad, or Android device

  1. On the Create page, select Your Designs and then select the design you want to edit.

    Alternatively, create a new design and give it an Instant Background. Then edit the design.

  2. Move a foreground object.

  3. Look for the "Content has changed" notification. It should appear as soon as you move the foreground object.

  4. Tap on the background to regenerate the Instant Background. The AI will recreate the background based on the new position of the object.

    Alternatively, select the Background layer and then select Regenerate background.

Note: If the Regenerate background option is not shown in the Background layer settings, it is usually because your design was originally associated with a template. To avoid this problem, create a new design, import your image, and give the design an Instant Background.
