How do I get this:






To not repeat itself? I want the picture there once only.

Y'know, Bucs--I tried that same exact thing with my Jericho pic using Guru's code and got the same and thought--UGH.

Answer--I dunno, but let me know as soon as you find out.



I only know that I can change; everything else just stays the same.

It's the size of your graphic, I think. If you double the width of it, it will only appear once, but it might look pixalated).

I'd suggest not using a photo for a background, it just looks to busy to me.

I think there's a way to use CSS or somethin', or maybe some HTML, to make it not repeat. I'll look through my HTML books.

RADIO EDIT: Found it.

Instead of:

<table background=URL width=100% height=231><td>

Use:

<table bgcolor="BACKGROUNDCOLOR" width=100% height=231><td STYLE="background: url(IMAGEURL) no-repeat" valign="top">

Replace BACKGROUNDCOLOR with what background color you want to show after the image stops repeating, and replace IMAGEURL with the URL to your image.

END EDIT

Regarding photos, do what I did with the Taker background (and what Guru's apparently done with his Big Show background) - desaturate the photo and decrease the brightness and contrast.

Man, I used to be an HTML guru, I even read about the norepeat command and I forgot aobut it.

I really need to dust up on my skillz.

And Mike, yes, I totally that if you're going to use a photo, taking it in Photoshop and softening the image helps. Making it black and white helps even more.
