    I still dont understand what you were trying to say. I tried transparent file and didnt worked too.
    First you have a regular layer that is your wallpaper like this:
    call-duty-advanced-warfare-havoc-delayed-march-3-pc-because-unexpected-issue-474382-.jpg
    Then through the tileapp upload your png like this, then you simply pin it
    3000389.jpg
    Your functional tiles are transparent and simply cover the existing wallpaper

    I tried your advice and it worked but it didnt looked good. I saw other screenshots and they used same picture for background and tileart tiles and they perfectly fit. How do they do that? wp_ss_20150314_0001.jpg

    I want the batman cape to continue on other functional clickable tiles but as you can see it wont fit.

    Some crafty photoshoppers probably can match the background with ease. I have extremely limited skills so I just crop the bg or find one similar
    Yeah you can't have the actual main image on a functional tile. You can resize the tiles to extend the cape and wrap out functional live tiles kinda like some of these below I did....

    Not the best job and a rushed one at that, but try this to get the idea how to work around it...use the first one for your wallpaper then use the Batman png with the tileart app

    This was my first time messing with tile art, and I happen to think it looks pretty great! (I had to screenshot Project My Screen on my PC cause my volume up button is broken on my phone, can't screenshot from it)

    Hi guys! After finally understanding how #tileart works, I've decided to share my huge home screen. I know, almost 22yo here and still love this crazy blue hedgehog and friends, don't judge me :) Hope you guys enjoy!
    See here for the entire home screen in one image: imgur.com/2wM2kaq

    wp_ss_20150322_0008.jpgwp_ss_20150322_0009.jpgwp_ss_20150322_0010.jpgwp_ss_20150322_0011.jpgwp_ss_20150322_0012.jpgwp_ss_20150322_0014.jpg

    Hope you like it!

    Also, for anyone having trouble understanding how #TileArt works: You are not suppose to make your home screen inside the a plication! The application is used for you to position an image (transparent preferably) to your taste, and then you place tiles on top of it: After that, you pin to the start screen the tiles one-by-one and place them together manually!

    Also, when you load a new image onto the #TileArt app it wont delete your previous image / mess up with it: It'll create a new entry inside the app, and you can modify that new image to your liking just normal. To edit a previously pinned image, you have to go to the start screen and tap on one of the tiles for the image you want to edit, it'll automagicly load up the app with the tile layout you made and the image in question so you can edit it!

    After fiddling around with pics and tile locations, I think I've finally come up with a Start Screen I can live with on a daily basis...after almost a year of changing the background daily, I was spoiled :)

    Here's newest one. This one has Ratchet & Clank theme! (one of my favorite game series)
    Background wallpaper looks bit tripping now because I photoshopped 3 images together...

    Oh how fickle I am... I decided I wanted a white theme which meant getting rid of the dark background image (I don't think dark images mesh well with the white theme). Thus...

    I like it. A very clean, uncluttered start screen.
