    Add a background tag to the body tag:

    Admin CP -> Styles -> Modify -> [fonts/colors/etc] -> page layout -> Body Tag

        It's just simple HTML:

        <body background="yourimage.jpg" bgcolor="#1E1D21" text="ffffff" id="all" leftmargin="10" topmargin="10" marginwidth="10" marginheight="10" link="#000020" vlink="#000020" alink="#000020">

            That depends on what screen resolutrion the user has. Prob. 800x600 or 1024x768 would be good.

              You can use CSS (the "no-repeat" attribute) to force an image to stop repeating.

                  bg properties: fixed

                  That would make the bg pic not repeat
