As an author you can specify a page level background image, which will sit beneath the published page content when output. This allows more graphically appealing page designs to be created, where standard page text can overlay part or all of an image.
A page background image can be set at the project level, so that it applies to all pages. It can also be over-ridden at the page level with a different image, or with no image.
The exact appearance of Studio components in the published output will depend on the publisher skin that you are using, as this can be configured for components to be transparent or opaque.
Defining a project-level background image
To define the project level background image, in the Project Properties dialogue, on the Branding tab, click Import to import a new image, or Browse to select an image that already exists in the media catalogue. The selected image will then appear behind the existing content in Studio and in the published output.
Project-level background images are optional.
Defining a page-level background image
By default, if a project-level background image is defined, it will appear on all pages in the project, as in the Page Properties dialogue, General tab, the Page background field defaults to: Inherit project page background image.
To select a different or no image on the current page, in the Page Properties dialogue, General tab, Page background field, click the combo box, and chose either Set page specific background image, or Show no page background image.
When you require a page-level background image, use the Import or Browse options to select the required image.
Note: Page-level background images are optional. You can select a page background image when no project-level page background has been defined.
