    Thanks a lot for this tutorial. It was indeed helpful.
    However, I’m trying to put a different background image on each page of my website, but it still uses just one image. How can I do this?

    okay thanks again.

  11. storyindustrial says:

    I think that was just a stock image. Go to istock.com or look for public domain mountain images.

  12. SwagSociety01 says:

    oh by the way do you mind giving me a link to the image you used in the background for this video ?

  13. SwagSociety01 says:

    woo! thanks for the quick reply! im following your tutorials right now there great and i figured it out, thanks for the quick reply 🙂
    great tutorials!

  14. storyindustrial says:

    It does that automatically. Thats why its called a background. As long as you place the image in the body tag it will be behind everything else.

  15. SwagSociety01 says:

    great video! just got a quick question, how did you get the webpage to be over the background?

  16. Saikeiworld says:

    Thank you for the tutorial much apreciated.

    Now I have this:
    background-repeat: no-repeat;background-position:center top;background-size: 100%;background-attachment: fixed;}

    It changes with the browsers size AND the attachment is fixed.

  18. Jasperguitar says:

    Thanks for the fast reply mate 😉 I have to create a website with three different designs for a school project. However the teacher does not explain too well. Now I have to search the internet for tutorials and such.

    My background now changes with the browser window: background-size: 100%;

  19. storyindustrial says:

    Just use a wider image. If a person has an unusually large screen they probably have problems with all websites, so yours wont seem any different to them.

  20. Jasperguitar says:

    Now what if I visit the website on a bigger screen? The background will not be big enough to cover the whole page :/ Anyone?
