Backgrounds is one of the most important areas in a website, so we’ve added every possible option so that you can create the biggest impact.
The background options are:

  • Solid Color
  • Single Image
  • Slideshow (premium)

In addition you can add a layer with solid color and define the opacity in order to improve the reading of the text over the background.
