    What dimensions should my background image be for a web page?

    What dimensions should my background image be for a web page? 30th Oct 08 at 12:56 PM
    I'm trying to design a background image for a website, using Photoshop to design the image and then Dreamweaver CS3 to design the web page that has that background.

    Despite trying to match up the image dimensions in Photoshop with the page dimensions in Dreamweaver, whenever I upload the page to Dreamweaver (and subsequently the html file) the image does not fit the page as I would like i.e. it doesn't 'stretch' the image to fit - instead it is either too big or tiled.

    Can anyone help me with this - is there a standard dimension I should be using?

    I'm using Win XP with a 1280 x 1024 screen resolution for what it's worth.

    Thanks very much.
    I am a cider drinker - like my father before me.
