About Background Images

Drupal offers you a number of "starter" background images which you can use. You can also upload your own images to use. When choosing images for your site background keep these few things in mind.

  • 1200x900 is a good size for a background image
  • reduce the resolution if the image loads slowly
  • reduce the opacity or increase the transparency so the image does not compete with the content
  • choose images which don't contrast or interfere with the content

  2. Click the Background images tab.
