3. Autumn (Fall) inspiration

  • Content ideas

In most downloaded autumn resources, backgrounds take the lead. They are used to welcome the upcoming changes of nature or to promote special offers for seasonal discounts. Other resources, such as frames and patterns, are also popular among users.

  • Common elements

Make sure to include nature-related elements: leaves, pine cones, rain, and wind or typical food such as mushrooms, nuts or cakes.

  • Color palette & styles

Autumn colors are inspired by nature itself. In fact, the variety of colors is wider than in other seasons: yellow, orange, brown, and even purple. Neutrals also take the lead this upcoming season, creating fancy and elegant compositions. Give it a try to soft lines and watercolor technique to add textures to your design.

  • Content ideas

Take pictures that capture the beauty of fall colors in nature, like the color ranges of the forest, or the carpets of crispt leaves. The contrast between the waterfalls and the fall colors is great to recreate an enchanting and magical atmosphere.

  • Common elements

The fall season is all about color-changing leaves and natural landscapes. You can also capture warm indoor spaces, where blankets, coffees, and a comfy ambiance take the lead.

  • Color palette

Autumn leaf color is a natural phenomenon that shows the change of color in leaves when the fall arrives. Use this phenomenon to take beautiful images full of orange, yellow, and brown tones.
