How To Make Custom Paintings In Minecraft

By  | 

Here we have a guide about how to add your own custom paintings to Minecraft in a few simple steps. Read on and learn how to make your Minecraft unique and special.


How to Make Custom Paintings in Minecraft

Minecraft has 26 paintings available you can use to decorate your buildings in the game. The tiniest ones are 16×16 pixels, covering only one block, while the biggest ones are 64×64 pixels, covering 4×4 blocks.

If you want to add a custom painting to your Minecraft, you will have to substitute one or all of the original paintings with your latest images. The method requires you to find the app folder on your PC and substitute the art before you enter the game. Once you do that, you will be able to choose and use the recently uploaded paintings the next time you run the game.

You will need extraction software like WinRAR as well as the photo editing software of your preference. You can add any picture or photo you want, and you can also make images in the game and then screenshot them as images to add later.

Find the Right Folder

To begin the process, you will have to find a folder frist named “%appdata%.” From there, find the Minecraft app and select the folder with the pre-designed art available in the game.

Follow these steps to do so:

  1. Press the Win+R.
  2. Enter %appdata% into the box and hit Enter.
  3. Your AppData folder will now open. Select the folder called Roaming. (The folder could be located somewhere else, so you can type “Roaming” into the Run window to navigate to it directly.)
  4. Open the folder and select the minecrarft.jar folder. Right-click on it, select Open with, then choose WinRAR or other unzipping software.
  5. Find and select the art folder. There, you will find a single file called kz.png.
  6. Copy the file to your desktop.
  7. Open the copied file in a photo editing program.
  8. You will see a file with pink cubes that represent the cubes in the game. Grab the image you want to add and place it over any of the existing images in the file itself. Resize the image until it’s the same size as the original painting you want to replace.
  9. Save the new kz.png image you have created and replace the original file in the art folder from the previous steps.
  10. Re-open the new kz.png file to see if the image is still replaced.
  11. Run Minecraft and place the image you’ve added in the game.

You can repeat the same process for all of the images to replace the original art with your own photos, pictures, or drawings.


Create Custom In-Game Images

You can also create screenshots in the game and use them as new art.

You can make objects in the game, take screenshots, and add them to the authentic “kz.png” file as a substitute for the stock images.

The method is the same as the one above, but instead of adding images from the internet or your very own photos, you have to find the “screenshots” folder in your game file and add the photos from there. The options are endless, so you can show the world how clever you are.

It takes time to build a custom scenario you can take a screenshot of later, but the reward will be worth it.
