If you have a Standard or Pro account you can add a background to your Pages.
1. Upload your background image to Viewbook (in one of your albums). 2. Once the upload is ready click on the image in the Organize Images view. 3. The right side panel opens, showing your image with the option to add a title and description. It also shows links to your image. Click the one that is called 'original'. It opens in a new browser window. 4. Copy the link, from your web browser's address bar. 5. Open your Page in the Image Manager and paste the link into the background image input field (including the 'http://' part). 6. Click in the page field, to save it all. 7. Open your page to see the result (or reopen your page in the Image Manager).
You can also copy paste a URL to your image from another server.
Background image dimensions
We now offer a scalable background option that displays fullscreen at any resolution. Make sure your image is large enough to fill up a high resolution monitor like Apple's retina display. A Macbook Pro with a retina display has a native resolution of 2880 x 1800 pixels, so you should make sure you upload a background image that is a tiny bit larger than 2880 x 1800. You are more than welcome to upload a smaller file, but it may display shoddily on high resolution screens. Also, don't be afraid to upload an image that has been compressed a little bit. Large images take time to load in your browser, so if you are saving your background as a jpeg in Photoshop you probably shouldn't save it as 100%. Try a few versions if you like, but 80% should be enough to make your page loading times faster.
To activate the scalable background you need to check the scalable box in the Background and Logos tab in the image manager as shown below.
Of course, you don't need to use a scalable background. A static background can also be a wonderful option, and it works for a great number of people. Just keep in mind that there are lots of display resolutions, and there is no set of parameters to make a static background look perfect on all computers. Be prepared to engage in some trial and error.
