How to Add a Background Image in WordPress



There are a ton of reasons to use a WordPress website as a business or organization’s online presence. But one thing a lot of people forget is how easy it is to make the site look more professional by adding a background image. In this short tutorial, I’ll show you how to do that… and… how to control where the image appears on the page.

Adding a background image to your website is very simple. You can use any image you want for this. However, it’s important to note that the image you choose should be a low resolution (72dpi) version of the high resolution (300dpi) image you will be using for your main graphic. For example, if you are going to use a 300dpi image, make sure you also have a 72dpi version of that same image.

You can get these images from just about anywhere. If you have a scanner and an hour or two to kill, you can even make your own. However, one of the best places to get images is from GraphicRiver.com. They have an enormous selection of stock photos and other graphics. Plus, they offer a 30 day money-back guarantee, so you can try them out with no risk whatsoever.

6. Next is the option of �Zooming� out so you can see more of your page. This is a great option for people with high-resolution, print-quality photos and/or videos.

7.Check this box only if you are going to use the media as your background image. Leave the other two boxes (centered and unzoomed) checked.

8. Now you need to decide how large you want your background image to be. You have two options here: a. If you are using an image that is already on your computer, you can leave the “Image Size” box blank and the photo will automatically be sized so it fits perfectly into your background. b. If you are using an image from a website or online service, you can enter the exact dimensions you want your photo to be. For example, a photo taken with a digital camera might measure
