    Default My Own Template

    I have made my own template in Photoshop. I am happy with the colors. I have looked through the templates and backgrounds and not found a background that I like.

    My website www.flutteringwingsbutterflyfarm.com

    I know it takes longer for the site to load. Do you have any suggestions for saving a background as: (size) that would make everyone happy.

    If I could save a background I could add my banner as an image and it would be a lot smaller and quicker to open.

    Suggestions.

    When you saved your photoshop image did you "Save for Web" ?
    The image size is quite large electronically. (336KB)
    I was able to save it @ 33KB with little resolution loss.

    I have Windows 7 and I'm seeing the start of a repeating pattern on the right side. I don't think this is intentional so you might want to check it out. Also, the yellow background under the butterfly (beautiful!) extends only about 3/4 of the way across.

    thank you for your help Terry I will try this.

    Paul thanks. I did not see the background under the butterfly I will have to look again. My daughter told me about the repeating image. That's why I am going to try the smaller picture. wish me luck.
