Hello Mike,

Love to help on this issue.

What is the style your using?
What was there before hand (if anything)
What is the size of the image
Finally what is your website URL?

Looking good!

Hello Peter,
The style is Yola's "Bare Necessities"

The site has a banner re-sizing tool, so the white area is where the original 900x125 pxl image (the part that says, "Road Storyer") was. At present I have a small banner image allows the back round to be seen, but I really don't know why it works when none of the others stored in File Manager do.

OK Mike,

I'm looking at it and will be back here if no-one else provides you with an answer before-hand.

Ok Mike,

I am looking at your site now. There's no issue of seeing the banner ghost for me live.

I am seeing major tiling though which is probably due to my monitor size and resolution so may not be an issue.

I'm using Chrome and Flock. I've also looked at it in IE. The appearance is near identical in all.

So I acn't quite identify your described problem.

Maybe clearing your browser cache would help this issue.

Suggest an image size of maybe 1500 px wide. Not so important because most but certainly not all are using monitor resolutions of say 1300 pixels width.

If I'm missing something I apologise in advance and happy to keep going with this dialogue and solution.

It's a great page. Like "the voyage of discovery" with your dark menu font on your dark image. Novel!

Hi Mike

I get the same thing as Peter. Your background image tiles for me. I see 4 repeats of it on my screen. Peter has given you a great suggestion on how to correct this.

Let us know if you continue to have difficulty.

Hello, Monique and Peter.
The background image is 1024x640. I changed the resolution of my monitor and got the tiling you all see. I'll try to fine tune the image. I appreciate your help.

They are very impressive images Mike. Is it what you are looking for or is there something that you wish to do and want some help or advice on?

I certainly like what you have done. You've captured a fairly unique atmosphere.

Hi Mike,

I suggest you decrease the file size of your background image as it is 401.41 kB at the moment which is very high and increases load time. My thoughts!

Hi, Connor.
Appearance is the problem, I can't tell the page looks except at 1024 res. I uploaded the current one which is 1280.
I may just publish the page backgrounds at 1024 with a disclaimer, when I can publish again.

Hi Mike,

you should be able to do both. ie publish it as an image of 1300 and reduce the file size. They are not related absolutely.

For a background image of this kind. i would be aiming at 200 kb. this will give you the resolution required for a decent quality image and reduce the loading time.

No one will adjust their resolution to look at a background. I wouldn't worry so much about a disclaimer as it's an awkward size for desktop computers. Common for laptops. It's no difficult to adjust both the physical size and the file size.

I will enjoy browsing your site Mike. it's great.
