Comment on Cascading Style Sheets by Admin.

Unfortunately you can not adjust a background image size and it is not a good idea to force browsers to accommodate a certain window size just to show excessively large images.

I would suggest that you set the image to a standard 800 x 600 size or at least maintain an 800 pixel width by maintaining the aspect ratio of the image with its height. You might also think about load times for your large image. I leave a site if the images take too long to load and go elsewhere and I have a fast computer and broadband.

You didn’t mention whether you are using the image for the body background or setting it as a BG for a div container. Either way, you need to resize it.

Cascading Style Sheets
CSS is an abbreviation for Cascading Style Sheets. Style sheets are simply text files (.css ), composed of lines of code that tell browsers how to display an HTML page. They give the designer more control over the appearance of a webpage by allowing to specifically define styles for elements, such as fonts, on the page. By using CSS one could separate HTML content from its appearance, distinguishing style from structure.
