I have a background image I want to use with the theme that I guess is used behind the slider and on some of the pages with header text. At the minute it is HUGE at 1920 x 1200. What would be a good size to reduce that down to that will work with most modern browsers on big screens, i’m guessing a 21″ imac is about average screen size these days?
I tried measuring it at around 510px high on screen but it might need to be bigger.
Any advice offered would be most welcome :)
Where else is it used? In the footer?
it gets used as a background iamge so all areas that gt no background defined will let it “shine through” in full width layout this would be header and footer, although you can prevent using it at the footer if you make the image a smaller height and do not tile it/tile it only on the x axis
If you really want to be sure I would go with a picture of about 1400-1600 width. Its currently difficult to talk about a common standard with all these devices like iPhone and iPad out there that got a much smaller screen size. for desktops and laptops I think you are fine with 1600
