About this video

This video assumes you are already logged into the Sketchanet editor. If you don't know how to do this, you can find out how here

 

In Sketchanet you can create reusable background image settings, and apply these settings to the background of sections or cells on your website (learn how to do this here).  Sometimes, text or other content may be too light to show up clearly on a bright background, or vice versa.

 

This is easily rectified within the editor, negating the need for an external graphics programme such as Photoshop.

 

To apply a filter to a  background setting, select that section, and then choose the Section Graphics tab from the right hand settings panel. Then click the Filter tab.  From here you can lower the opacity of the image or add a tint of any colour at any opacity.  Dark tints work best for light content and vice versa.
