Ideal dimensions for background image?

Recommended Posts

Is there an  ideal size for Canvas background images? Or is there a resource that lists the ideal sizes for all of the sections?

 

Thank you

Hi Jane,

 

There is no ideal size for a Canvas background image, as the Canvas area uses the cover value on the background-size CSS property. Cover will scale your background image to be as large as possible so that the background area is completely covered by the background image. Some parts of the background image may not be in view within the background positioning area.

 

Basically, the more content you have in your Canvas area i.e. sections the larger you will want your image to be. However, due to the use of cover, you do not need to use an image that is excessively large, as cover will scale it for you.

In my opinion, the one thing you really do need to keep an eye on is the actual file size of your image, using an image in the Canvas area, you will probably want to not exceed a file size of 100kb.
