Web Design

Backgrounds

A background should enhance your site not overpower it – don’t let it detract from the content.

  • don’t use brightly coloured backgrounds that make it difficult to read your text
  • remember that sound files in the background will impact on the loading time of your site as they are often big in size
  • if you use a sound file in the background of your page give the user the option to turn it off
  • some browsers don’t recognise background images in tables and cells so don’t use this method
  • don’t use large images as backgrounds to your pages – get your message across with another technique
