 Fill, Tile, & Fixed Styles

  • The 'fill' style will stretch the image to fit on a screen
  • The 'tile' is for pattern image tiles. Great when collecting tile image patterns. (ex: subtlepatterns.)
  • The 'fixed' style will display the actual size of the image.

 Pinning

Hover over the image preview on the left within the BG toolbar to pin your background to a point on the screen

Tips

  • Image dimensions over 1,000px wide work best.
  • Enhance your backgrounds with image filters. pixlr-o-matic is a free service offering many filters giving images a retro edge. Check out pixlr to view full offering of  easy in-web image editing tools.
  • Search for 'free license' images.
  • Photopin is a great source for creative commons images which acts as a search engine for the millions of cc images published on flickr.
  • Highlight focus points of your background (using the 'pinning' option). Learn about the different background tools within the editor.
  • Make sure the text in your POP does not get lost in the colors of your background (when using transparent type themes).
