Customising your Blog's Background

Blogger provides lots of backgrounds
and they all cater for different tastes and styles. Lets say however that you would like to place your own original background picture. Here will list two ways. The first is through uploading and the other is through CSS. Both are done using the blogger template platform.

The first is the easiest. Go to template designer then background, click on the button that says upload new. This will direct to your choice of picture from your hard drive.

Another way is to use CSS. This involves registering with someone like and send your pictures there. Copy the required code form that site. It will be needed to insert into your CSS code which goess in the CSS frame. CSS is found in the advanced section of the template designer folder

Use this code to transfer background pictures from photobucket to your blog's background.

.body-fauxcolumn-outer {
background: url(  direct link between these brackets   );
.body-fauxcolumn-outer div {
background: none;

Once the code is complete then click accept and your new background picture will display on your blog.

One difficulty I'm having is to place animated parts on the background that weave underneath the blog posts within a set prescribed pattern. Tried using powerpoint presentation and then tranfering but the file is too big to tranfer. Would appreciate a clue in how to do this.
