The art of using Key Phrases.
Thanks to Andrew for creating some new tiled background images. These can be found in the Clip Art and Background folder of the image browser.
The beauty of using background tiles means that you can enhance the visual appearance of your website. Secondly they tile which means they will evenly cover the entire screen, which is great for viewers that have large monitors and creates a complete visual presence.
In Laymen's terms i can explain it as follows.
Imagine your website is a picture in a frame on you living room wall. The picture frame is always the same size however the wall size may vary. The smaller the wall the more the picture frame is the focus of attention the larger the wall the opposite occurs. Now if you remove the frame from around the picture and apply a textured wallpaper with complementary colours that match the picture the entire wall. The wall becomes the frame. thus the entire visible area becomes part of the picture no matter what size the wall is.
Please feel free to experiment with our stock tiled background images from the content editor to enhance your websites look.
If you need any assistance enhancing your site then please feel free to contact our designers who will use there professional eye to enhance your websites look. face lifts and site upgrades are always great for enhancing your site and company profile. Our designers are more than happy to put together a personal design package just for you.
