5. Below the Background-image option there is Background-repeat option to apply different repeat styles for the image:

  • Repeat (The background image will be repeated both vertically and horizontally).
  • Repeat-x (The background image will be repeated only horizontally).
  • Repeat-y (The background image will be repeated only vertically).
  • No-Repeat (The background-image will not be repeated, this should be default option if none is selected.


6. There is also a Background Position option available to set the image alignment.

  • Left (aligns the background image to the left).
  • Right (aligns the background image to the right) .
  • Center (aligns the background image to the center position - this should be default value).




Similarly, you can add background images to General and Footer Sections also.

Note : Background images are uploaded in to Emgage Prime Stylizer Themes library inside Images folder for all themes of particular site collection. Therefore, if you upload an image with a duplicate name then it will overwrite the existing image even if it is for a different theme or section.
