    I haven't used App Inventor in a while now but...are you just asking how to change the background of the canvas, or is there something else you need help with?

    If so, when you're on the Designer page, click the icon for the canvas under where it says "Components." Then, under where it says "Properties", you can change the Background image of the canvas.

    Or, if you want to change it later (i.e. while the app is running), go to the blocks page. From there, open the blocks for the canvas and there are various blocks that will allow you to change the background.

    As I said, it's been a while since I've used App Inventor (or done any programming in general), but I hope this makes some sort of sense.

    I think that there's a block that says "Set [canvas].backgroundimage to..." and then you can change it that way?
