Showing your custom image in the Blender splash screen

A simple and effective way to give Blender a little personality is to change the boot splash screen image from the default one to your own.

It’s very easy to do.

1. In the directory where you installed Blender, open the “bl_app_templates_system” folder:

Create a directory in it with any desired name, for example, “my_splash”.

Path to the created directory:

2. Create an image for your own splash screen.

Dimensions: 501 x 250 pix

Format: PNG

File name: splash.png

And copy it to the created directory.

3. Create a shortcut to launch Blender.

In the shortcut properties in the application launch field, type the following:

Note, the text after “–app-template” should be the same as the name of the directory you created in step 1.

4. Launch Blender from the created shortcut.
