I am trying to give my pages a background by selecting through the inspector pallet. When viewed in preview the background image does no show in the page…it’s always off the page. I’m using Pro 4.4.2…it’s a jpeg
I don’t think I want it to look like tiling ( a repeated image)…The jpeg image is as large as the page. So the page is the entire image as seen…only in previewing the page’s image starts about halfway down the page and continues to run off.
Yes, I want the background to entirely cover the page vert. and hor. The other elements are unimportant…still in the process of design…just can’t get past this problem.
Ok, then you have to make you background image much taller to cover more of the vertical page. Otherwise you will be tyling. So for example, make you graphic 1200px tall. In this case more is better. However, as Deltadave suggest try and save it to the smallest size possible to speed up page loads.
You may also want to consider making a solid color background bigger than you need vertically to keep size down, then center your main graphic at the top of the page but drop out the background in Photoshop and place it as a transparent .png file so your background color shows through.
thank you all…but to no avail i still have the problem of not seeing what I intend. I have not been clear. My screen is 23", the res is 1920 x 1200. The page is 800px x 600px.
I have put a frame around the page so as to clearly show that the background jpeg is not within the frame. Perhaps this is not possible ?
I simply want a textured background within the page confines.
I have also viewed at lower res.
First of all, the “page” background in Freeway is really the background behind the page. The page as you call it is all the content. So, to do what you want, first apply an html box that covers the entire page, then apply your background image to that with a style. This is now the page background. All the rest of your content will go on top or inside of that html box.
If you still want a background beyond your “page”, then add a color to Freeway’s page background that coordinates with the image background.
