Unity Assets: How do I turn a Picture into a Sprite in Unity

A nice background in a 2D game is essential to creating a positive first impression. To achieve this, we must first convert the image to a sprite by dragging and dropping it in the project window. Then in the Texture Type, select “Sprite(2D and UI)” and apply the changes.

To use the sprite as a background, add a new empty object to “Hierarchy” windows and add the Sprite Renderer component. Finally, drag the earlier prepared sprite to the Sprite field.

With just a few steps, you can create a sprite in Unity from an image and use it as a background. Remember to optimize your sprites, so they don’t take up much space, which is important for mobile games.
