How to put a big picture in your tumblr background

somethingchanged:

eg like this - instructions by exalen:

Well, first you’ll have to get/make a background picture with the right dimensions. The one at Love Puppy is 1400px × 1326px.

To change the background image properties you’ll have to get into the Style part of the theme code.

You currently have this:

body {
background: #FCFCFC url('/themes/4/bg.gif');
margin: 0px 0px 50px 60px;
font: Normal 13px Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
color: #443535;
}

You need to change it to something like:

	    body {
background: #FCFCFC
url(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3099/2595371561_640febca29_o.jpg );
background-attachment: fixed;
margin: 0px 0px 50px 60px;
font: Normal 13px Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
color: #443535;
}

You can swap the JPG for your preferred background pic. Make sure the dimensions are suitable.

The fixed makes it stay put. If you leave this out it will move with scrolling.

Hope that makes sense. :-)

Thank you so much exalen! I know what I’ll be doing tomorrow.

do this later…
