How to Choose the Perfect Background Image
Background images create and set the tone of your website. It probably comes as no surprise then that one of the key ingredients to creating a beautiful background is choosing striking images. Adding several stunning background images can transform your website into an exciting and engaging experience. Since it’s the first impression users have of your site, you should select the best image that communicates to your users what your site is about or what you do.
When choosing background images for your website, there is a lot to think about, like placement, dimension, and file size. You can find all the information you need on how to optimize images on your website in our Support Center.
