Your images will replace the painting’s image, but the names of the paintings stay the same as the default ones. So, if you are in the creative mode, you can figure out which image replaces a specific default painting.

However, in survival, this is not all that important. Make sure you remember the dimensions of the paintings and you won’t have a problem obtaining them in your world.

And that’s how you get custom paintings using the Minecraft Painting Creator. Thanks to this easy-to-use tool, you can make your builds and interiors stand out. Not only that, but it will allow you to express yourself differently.

Who designed the Minecraft paintings?

The person who designed the default Minecraft paintings is Kristoffer Zetterstrand, a Swedish artist.

How do you get the painting you want in Minecraft?

The painting you will get depends on the space available. If you’re right-clicking on a massive wall with a painting, you’ll likely get only massive paintings. So, if you want to get a smaller painting, you’ll need to put some blocks to make the available area smaller. With this method, you’ll more easily get the paintings you want.
