Q. What's the trick for using a picture as a page background?

A. Keep it small and apply the picture as a tiled background. If you keep the edges blurry, they blend smoothly, avoiding that floor-tile look. Save your file as either a GIF or JPEG with the name background. Your web page creator program should be able to insert it automatically, but if not, use the HTML tag <body background="background.gif"> (or .jpg, if appropriate).

Another effect that uses the whole photo once is to make the image nearly transparent so that it looks really toned down. Use it as a nontiled background, or watermark.
