If you frequent the AppStorm sites, you know that we love apps. We love writing with them, designing with them, coding with them, and so much more. Our prime directive is to share our love of apps with you. In this occasion, however, we will support our love for apps and design by giving you a sweet roundup of some of the most amazing templates for your video projects.
If you are currently working on a summer-themed wedding video, or a simple intro for a business, this list should help you if you need a refreshing touch of summer on your projects. You can use these files with Final Cut, iMovie, Adobe Premiere, After Effects, or whatever you use to edit your videos.
Let’s not keep you waiting and let’s check out these fantastic files from VideoHive, AudioJungle, and GraphicRiver, marketplaces run by our parent company, Envato.
Let’s start our roundup with graphics. First up, we have a sweet summer background that will work great as a backdrop to your video projects or slideshows. This one is a vector illustration with a palm tree, some flowers, and of course, the sun and waves.
This one is a grunge summer background with cool colors and silhouettes. The colors invoke the tranquility summer brings, but the people dancing symbolize all the fun you can have during the summer. This one is perfect for backgrounds, transitions, intros, or titles.
Much like the one above, Summer Party 2 gives you the best of what summer has to offer. This one has a completely different set of colors and overall tone. It is up to you which one you like best for your project. Unlike the previous one, however, this works best as a background only.
This isn’t the embodiment of summer, but let’s face it, these abstract leaves floating through the air and across your screen can give you that summer vibe. You can use them as a background or as decoration for your video projects. The author has many different styles as well, so if you don’t fancy these, check the other ones out.

This tropical background is perfect for those of you who are looking for something more, well, tropical.

Following with the tropical vibes, we have this summer background which has a parrot in it. You can’t get more tropical than that. Albeit not exactly a summer token, but the background makes up for it. You can use this one as a background or decoration for your video.
Let’s get a little abstract! With the sun, some palm trees, and some cool water, this background gives you a refreshing take on summer. The arrows make it look exceptionally “funky”. You can use this one as a background or as decoration as well.

Check out this Photoshop photo effects. They are great for giving any picture that summery look and feel.
To wrap things up, we have this awesome grunge summer party background. It contains all of the things you look for in the summer, and it looks extremely good. The image’s background looks so real that it gives you the impression that the paint is still fresh. You can use this one as a background.
