So what we wanted to do in this section is to create a background. Now you could get some free backgrounds on line or you can create them, but either way you’re going to want to upload those. So we’re going to go up here to the top where it says “Settings” and we’re just going to go into that, and we’re going to be looking for the “Design” tab this time. So if we hit the Design tab at the top, that’s going to bring up this part and several themes, there’s 19 themes that are pre-made that you can choose from. So all you would do is click one of them, and then you would hit “Save Changes”. But for this we’re going to upload our own image, so I hit “Change Background Image” and then we’ll go to choose file, and this will bring up the actual images. We’re going to hit this one here. It’s a Dodge Viper Hennessey, it’s just an example background, and in order to apply that hit “Save Changes” and it’s applying those changes now. And do bear in mind, you can change this back at any point and upload as many different backgrounds as you want. So to review that click “Home” and there we’ve got the background.
