Inserting Background Pictures and Watermarks

You can use a picture as the background for a page. Pictures can be taken from elsewhere on your site, a file, clip art, or the Web. You can also use a background picture in watermark form. A watermark is a background effect that displays a graphic in a light shade behind your text on your page. You can use a washed out version of your company logo, or you can add graphical text such as Under Construction. Pictures and watermarks display in the background titled across the page. Be aware that not all Web browsers support watermarks.
