The Random Background Action will choose a background image and/or a color on a page at random when the page loads. These are the same options you would get in Freeway when you set the background for your page. Further, you can apply the Action directly to a layered object on your page, and it will get the same (random) treatment. Each page element that you apply the Action to will get its own random choice, which can lead to some highly unpredictable color combinations!
That’s true, but then that wouldn’t be a background image at all.
Those don’t have dimensions, they float behind anything else you put
on the page, etc. Any image – by definition – that you can define as
having a scale or dimension is not a background image.
Now you can certainly place an image at the back of the layer order,
make its height stay in lock-step with the width while filling the
browser screen. But that is still not a background image at all.

These are all 800 x 600 pixel PNGs but your images can be any web
ready file format (JPGs, PNGs, GIFs, etc) or a mixture of them. The
action will scale them proportionally to fit the browser window so you
will be faced with a trade off between quality (small images will
pixelate when scaled up) and image size (my 10 images make this sample
page a whopping 6.5MBs!).

I see you updated the background slideshow. works great now. You build it for me, but we didn’t get it right at that time. But i’ve downloaded it an tested it again.
But also I don’t get the scrollbars. The rest works fine now, so if you could manage the scrollbar problem, I will still be glad to pay you the 150 dollar we agreed.
