    The way I generally do it, is make a big version of the image, so it's too big for tiling, but then you have a big file. Another way to do it is on the fly, getting user's ENV settings for resolution and scaling the image accordingly server side.

    hi hunn.. If I had to go with it could be the two #3 or #4, it rather is optimal to adhere with black and white clothing for an interview. And yet another tip is to no longer be exhibiting ANY component to your bra-which includes the straps,as you may desire to no longer be looking so 'casual' and a splash greater clever.(this ofcouse relies upon what interest you have an interview for nevertheless,haha) #3 is a huge determination. even nevertheless #4 i could perhaps placed a cardigan over to conceal up slightly :) i could say bypass with the darker denims, as those are the closest to black. additionally- attempt donning your hair up and out of your face. final of all, good success with your interview hunn!! Take care, Jordyn.xo

    Im not sure what HTML code your using for your background. Try changing your repeat setting. Another solution that you can play around with is to go to a layout page and just switch there background picture url to yours.

    Look for something like this

    background-repeat:no-repeat; background-color:transparent;

    Add this just above your </head>:

    <style type="css/text"

    body {

    background: url(images/your-image.jpg) left top;

    background-repeat: no-repeat;



    Just make sure that your image is in the images (or whatever directory you use) and reflected in the () above.

    go to your desk top...right click with your mouse and choose properties...go to the desktop option...browse and find the picture that you want. once you select the picture you should see an option (in a drop down box) that offers tile, center or want stretch
