I think it would be a very useful feature to be able to have photos as background for pages. Could someone please tell us all how to do this? Regards Lesley
Lesley Graham Welcome to the Canvas Community! In keeping with our commitment to accessibility, the Canvas Rich Content Editor (RCE) does not afford the user the ability to insert background images or watermarks behind text.
For those who would like to try this on their own, I found a related discussion that offers a variety of suggestions: Background graphic using the rich content editor
If you're interested in working with HTML to accomplish this, you might consider joining the Instructional Designers group to solicit advice from the experts.
Please let us know if one of the solutions mentioned in the discussion will work for you; we're looking forward to your feedback!
Lesley Graham -- Hi -- sorry I'm so late in responding to this; I've been gone for a while. While background images make things pretty, keep in mind that they really impact accessibility. Many people find it very difficult to separate foreground from background. When the image is very faded, and the text very simple and large with high contrast from the image it isn't quite so bad, but it's still difficult. My eyesight isn't the greatest and particularly when I'm tired, I really find it difficult to easily read text over images.
Thanks I was really only thinking of simple title pages so the text is usually bold I also think that selecting the place on the photo ie an area of solid colour is the only way to do this to enhance accessibility Regards Lesley
