Hi Rizan22,

To delete/remove a background image, follow these steps:

1. Click on the "Properties" tab on the sidebar on the right.
2. At the bottom of the "Properties tab", under "Background image" click on the three dots (...)
3. A dialog box will appear, click on "none" in the bottom right corner of the dialog box.
4. You will now have no background image

When you add a background image to your page it does cover the whole page. Can you please tell me what effect you are getting?

Kershnee, that was easy...
no it didnt cover the entire page just the upper and lower areas. the upper was above the banner area and lower was like another banner.

Hi rizan,

Your style tastelessly allows a background that is placed behind the white frame. So it's a bit different to some other styles.

If you take a single image of say 900 pixels x 260 pixels as a single photo image then many users will see it as a tiled image. maybe three rows down and two columns across. as you see in the shot following


If you thake it up in size to 1400 pixles x 900 pixels it will show as a single shot across and if your page is very long it will tile in the vertical aspect noticeable as you scroll down. (Sorry no image because the builder file manager has closed down on me)

Most, but by no means all people, use a screen resolution of 1268 x 960 pixels. So how do you choose? There's no rule of thumb. Most designers will go for relatively seamless images where if tiling occurs it's not really noticeable. This is skill.

if you want a recurring pattern background then the thing to do is to have the pattern as a 50 x 5o pixels say and it will automatically tile and fill the background with a pattern:


You can use this small image method to change the colour of a background also. So you would create a colour chip of your choice about say 100 pixels by 100 pixels and use this as your background.

Good luck. hope this has helped.
