  3. open and if u dont have one make an acoount its quick easy and free. upload ur immage then get the URL code

Hi Blessly!

To quickly answer your questions:

1 & 2 Background images:

  • If you are using a single image you want to stretch across your site, it won't work. Unless you stretch the image yourself using a photo editor, but then it may not look good for all resolutions. I do have an example of a stretched image on my Help-Site Roster Page. The image itself is stretched to 1700 x1322 - if the screen resolution goes above that (which probably already has or may in the future) it may not look as good. You could also check out this post about changing your content sizes and background image based on the users browser window.
  • If you don't have a single image you plan on using, then your best bet would be to use an image that you can make repeat in only the horizontal direction, vertical direction or both (tiled) - maybe this tutorial will help explain better.
You can always get to the Help-Site using the link in my sig below... I wish you luck!
