Developed by

Not Version 9 Ready Yet.
My page is still very much under construction but this add-on does what is says and is very easy to use. Superb work…



- display full screen background images that fill the browser window without tiling

- set a focal point to keep an area of the background image visible at different screen sizes

- overlay semi-transparent colors over the background image

- add an image vignette effect

- responsive image scaling to deliver smaller images to mobile devices

- fallback background color for non-supported browsers


Desktop Browser Support:

- modern browsers

- Internet Explorer 8 and up


Mobile Browser Support:

- iOS Safari 5.1+ (portrait view only in 5.1)

- Chrome

- Opera

- Firefox

- Android browsers using AppleWebKit 537+

- Mobile Internet Explorer


Tips For Best Results:

- to improve performance, avoid using overly large or poorly optimized images

- for targeting desktop and tablet displays, an image aspect ratio between 4:3 and 16:10 often works well

- a happy medium for quality and size is between 1200 x 900 pixels and 1600 x 1200 pixels (ranging between 100KB and 250KB in size)

- remember to keep your site performance budget in mind
