How To Add A Background Image In Your Blog And Make It FIXED

Finding a background image for your blog is not an easy thing to do, You have to choose the right color for your image to match your template's color. There are other things you should consider like :

  • Pixel size
  • Pattern (if you want to use pattern)
  • Picture (if you want to use picture)
  • Image copyright issue
Except the Blogger standard templates, Not all templates give us access to insert image through the template design setting. This means we have to do it from the template's HTML editor.

To insert a background image using the template's HTML editor, We only have to find some codes after the body { tag and add an image url next to them.

To do this, Please follow the below steps :

  • Log in to Blogger.
  • Go to dashboard > Click Template > Edit HTML > Proceed
If your template only have a solid color background without an image, The code will look similar like this :

body {
    color: #000000;
    background: #ddd ;
    font: 12px/18px Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;
To add a background image, Simply add the code marked with red : 

body {
    color: #000000;
    background: #ddd url(YOUR IMAGE URL) ;
    font: 12px/18px Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;
What to think next is to set wether the image are showing repeatedly in the background or Just fixed when we scroll the page.

If we haven't set the image yet to be fixed, Some images will show this repeated pattern which is not looking good at all :

To avoid the repeated pattern shown in your page, You can add the code marked with red next to the image url :

body {
    color: #000000;
    background: #ddd url(YOUR IMAGE URL) fixed;
    font: 12px/18px Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;

Save your template and refresh your blog page to test the background image.
