For some creative ways you can use background images across your website, check out our article on Background Photo Effects or if you want to learn more about the effects you can add to your background photos read our article on Background Blending Modes.

Keep in Mind: Since a Text Section changes size depending on how much text you enter into the section, we do not have a set size for Background Images. Any photo you upload to the section should work! We recommend using a larger size photo if possible.

We suggest keeping your videos under 25MB or less to prevent your users from a slow loading experience on your site.

Videos are saved at a 1 minute length maximum, and they will continually loop for your visitors.Removing Background Images/Videos
