View Full Version : background picture on web

I tried to use a picture for a background but if viewed on a higher screen size it tiles. Here's the link maybe you can tell what I'm doing wrong. www.mcd4x4.com/alana.htm

A background image will tile to fit the resolution unless you tell it not to. Would you want it centered and not to repeat?
you can add that in your head tags to make it not repeat, it will center on any resolution.

If you want a non-repeating background - so it doesn't tile - then do something like so -
background: url(picture.jpg) no-repeat;
Although, then in larger resolutions, the background will stop half way. I don't think you can stretch the background to cater for all resolutions.
EDIT: Darn, was beaten to it.

So than the css sounds like the way to go?

css is the standards way to go, you could use the old html attributes like bgpropties="fixed" or bgcolor="blah" but thats deprecated and shouldn't be used. CSS should be used in place of it.
