How can I make a "wide" wallpaper like this...

Hi all,

I’d like to direct your attention here: http://www.thebelasco.com/

How do I make these “outside” areas like that that seem to surround the main (center) part of the webpage. I’m trying to create an area outside of my normal webiste and have some animation like those colored tiles that glow.

I’m not specifically asking how to create the tiles, but rather, how do I put something “outside” of the main part of my webpages?

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

This page is made up of overlapping background images.

This example uses a similar technique http://deltadesign.co/examples/belasco.html

Thank you David. But I don’t think I conveyed my question properly.

In Freeway, how do I make anything appear to the left or two the right of my actual page?

Here’s my site: www.resonate.la. If you click through to the “HOME” page, you’ll notice that there is a sea of blue/purple on either side of the main (center) area.

How can I add images way outside on the left and the right? I don’t understand how to position things “outside” of the main area…

In FW you can add a background image to your page.

With nothing selected on the page look in the Page Inspector

Under the 2nd Tab (paintbrush) the top section is for Background settings, there are options where you can choose Color and Image.

If you choose an image that is wider than your ‘page’ and set the bg to Horizontal:Center then any content in that bg image will show either side of your web page.
