This article will cover how to adjust rooms in mmhmm desktop, mmhmm web, and mmhmm Studio. Rooms are what we call the backgrounds you use in mmhmm. There are a couple of different types of rooms:

  • Still images 
  • Dynamic rooms -  Moving backgrounds (procedurally generated with math) with settings you control. Dynamic Rooms have a play button (triangle) icon. 
Note: To use all of the rooms mmhmm has to offer, you must upgrade to mmhmm Premium. Click here to learn more.

    Note: Previously uploaded rooms will appear in the Custom tab.

  2. Click Add Room to upload a JPG, PNG, or GIF from your computer.
    Tip: For best results, use an image with a width-to-height pixel ratio of 16:9. We recommend 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is a common size that’s big enough to look great in mmhmm.
