How to Add a Picture to Your Blog Background

Taken From: http://tips-for-new-bloggers.blogspot.com/2007/03/background-image-for-blogger-template.html

Digg This Story
Background Image for Blogger Template

With this guide, you would be able to add a background image or picture to your Blog, customize the position of your image, and have a static background image that stays in place when you scroll through the contents of your blog.

You will need to create an image. Find a picture you like. If you need a free photo editing tool, you can either search the net for one or use Google's Photo Editing Software Picasa. You can also use a small tile-size image which can be repeated so as to cover the entire page. Try not to have an image file that is too large as your page may take a little longer to load.

After creating a picture, you will need to upload it onto a free picture host. You can read about using free hosts like Google Page Creator and Google Groups. We have also a rather comprehensive list of free Image Hosts and File Hosting Services in our article on Manage Blogger Image Storage Space. Check out those sites and choose one that is fast, reliable and enables hotlinking to the uploaded files. Take note of the picture URL.

Next, log in to your dashboard layout; under Template -> Edit HTML, scroll to where you see this:-

Third day of class

Aloha,

Today is another great day to work on your project. Please check your email and see if you have received the blog calendar and blog standards. I want each of you to follow it and this is what will get you credit for doing your blog.

Remember:

- I want at least 5 good posts with about two paragraphs in them. Posts are the main features of blogs. Blog is actually short for weblog, so a blog is actually a type of journal.




- I want at least 10 pictures on your blog





- I also want a bunch of links. Links are the things you click on to take you to another website or blog. You must have links to the HLC homepage, our HLC Bloggerz blog, and a bunch of other ones.




- The base credit hours for this course is .10, but you can get more if you come and talk to me about how much time you are going to spend on your project blog.
