Chapter 17. CorelDraw and the Web > Adding a Page Background

Adding a Page Background

A good place to start when designing a Web page is to add a background color or image. Images used as backgrounds on a Web page are usually tiled, meaning that the image is repeated seamlessly across and down the page.

To set a color or tiled image as the page background:

1.
Choose Tools > Options or press .

The Options dialog box opens.

2.
Expand the categories to allow you to select the Document > Page > Background heading.

3.
Enter checkmarks in the Print and Export Background check boxes.

4.
To use a solid color as the background, click the Solid radio button and pick a color from the drop-down palette (Figure 17.7).

To use a tiled image as the background, click the Bitmap radio button and then click Browse. In the Import dialog box (Figure 17.8), navigate to the drive/folder that contains the image you want to use, select the image, and click Open. In the Source area of the Options dialog box, click the Embedded radio button.
