For security reasons all default custom screens are stored in the app.

Please note that some custom screens cannot be changed, depending on the firmware version installed on your reMarkable. You can use following file formats: PNG, JPG, GIF, BMP or PDF.
Via the picture history you can reuse all previously used pictures. So you can put together a collection of your most popular screens. With "Delete picture history" you can delete all of these pictures. With "Open OS folder with all used screens" you open the Windows folder where all data can be found. You can also synchronize this folder with any cloud solution.

Image processing directly in the rM2 Template Helper application
Sometimes you don't have the opportunity to generate your picture in the optimal resolution (1404x1872). This is not a problem. You can still use it for templates and custom screens. Drag your picture into the application as described above. If it does not meet the resolution specifications, the integrated image processing opens automatically. Here you can rotate and zoom your picture or adjust it exactly to the screen size.
