View Full Version : Background Images

I have a specific bitmap background I want to use for my page but I dont want it to be continuing frames. Its spreading out to the right properly but I'm hoping there is a way to get it to spread down the page as you scroll down. I know it can be done as I have seen it on a published page as one solid fading image. Can this be done in bluevoda?

It is a common effect you can do using a photo editor ..... maybe even the MS/Windows Picture Editor that is included with the basic OS on your computer.

Maybe even consider using a shape to define your page bottom itself ... combine it with your faded picture to a white panel, and then add the page bottom?
Try creating a shpe in BV with a "shading" to offer more of a blended transition from the picture to the background: it is not necessary to "dress up" the 'page below the fold' (further down than 700 pixels) as this is in total expectaions of both visitors and SE's.
