Premade Twitter Theme

If you are using your own background image, then the recommended size for the full background image is 1920px wide and 1200px in height. The file size cannot exceed 2 MB. You may also use smaller images if you want to select the Tile option.  The Tile option is used if you want your picture to repeat across the background. Background images must be in PNG, GIF, or JPG format.

Select the Change Background button and upload an image from your computer.

Choose whether your Background position will be left, center or right.

If your image is not very large, you can choose the background color that will show behind the image.

Choose a theme color.
