Photos and images for your Scratch projects

Photos and images by Sean McManus that you can use in your Scratch projects

Book cover: Scratch Programming in Easy StepsWhen I went on holiday after finishing writing my book Scratch Programming in Easy Steps, I had spent so long immersed in Scratch that I noticed scenes around me that would work well as Scratch backgrounds. I took some photos that I thought I'd share with you to use in your Scratch backgrounds when I visited a castle, and then thought I'd go through my photos archive to see if I had any other photos that might make great Scratch backgrounds.

On this page, you can find images you can use in your Scratch projects. I've also included some images I made for the example projects when I was writing the book, including an image of an ice cream for the game Super Dodgeball, the Cosmic Chorus title screen, and some Game Over graphics.

UPDATE: I have a new book now too called Cool Scratch Projects in Easy Steps. Visit its link to download all the graphics from the book, watch videos, and find more bonus materials.
