[Pro] Alignment Horizontal Image Banner/Header

if I set up a standard page, center it, put a background color in it, make sure that the CSS button is selected and then try to put a banner image where a header would normally go, how do I make it stay centered horizontally?
I have been searching for a way to do this as well as trying to do it in my FreewayPro 6, to no avail!

You center the page, not the element. I’m also answering this in another thread; it’s best not to start a new thread once you’ve created one…

You use the terminology “put a background color IN it” (emphasis mine). I fear this may be a part of your problem.

A background color is APPLIED to an object, it is never an object unto itself. Select the object you wish to have a background color (or the page itself, which you may select by clicking anywhere blank on the page or pasteboard, so nothing is selected on the page) and then look in the Inspector’s Style tab. There you will find the options to select a background image or color, and to set the tiling options on the former. Drawing an object and sending it to back does not create a background color, it simply creates a foreground object filled with a color. That is not even close to being the same thing.

Sorry, I meant I had applied a background color to the basic page itself. THEN I wanted to put in a image banner where a header would normally be placed, and I want it to be centered horizontally on the page. So to recap, there isn’t anything on the page except a page background color.

What is the page alignment set to? Page Inspector, first tab, Measurements segment, Align picker…

It is set at “Center”.

Then anything on your page that is full width of the apparent “page” area in Freeway should be centered in the browser.
