What are Roblox decals?

Roblox decals are essentially images that you can overlay on in-game objects. Think of them as world-building tools, turning a plain white object into a wall, a bin, or a poster. Once you have a decal you like, you can use it as your calling card throughout your games or just to make creating a new environment easier. Decals are perfect for patterns, like brickwork or wallpaper, saving you time creating the same thing repeatedly.

How do I create Roblox decals?

To create Roblox decals, you first need to find an image you want to use and save it. It may need some editing before you upload it to the Roblox Studio platform, especially if it’s over roughly 1000×1000 pixels. Any images that large are likely to blur due to Roblox’s limitations, so keep that in mind when creating images for decals. Once you have your image, check out the next section below.

How do I upload Roblox decals?

If you have an idea for a Roblox decal, you can follow these simple steps to upload it for use in creating new games.

  • Create the image you want in-game
  • Save the image somewhere you can find it
  • Hit the ‘create’ option on the Roblox home page
  • Head to the Roblox Creator dashboard
  • Select the ‘creations’ option on the left-hand tab
  • Tab over to ‘development items’ and then the ‘decals’ subsection
  • Browse your device for the decal you want to use and select it
  • Type a name for the decal into the text box
  • Select the ‘upload’ option
  • Wait for moderation

As there’s a lot of creative freedom with this process, all potential decals first need approval from Roblox’s team of moderators. Providing your decal isn’t offensive or inappropriate, you should have no problem with the approval process. If you need a reminder of what’s allowed, check out the Roblox community guidelines.
