In my last post, I discussed how to run a profitable online business. In today’s article, I’m rightly going to talk about how to add or change a background image in BlogSpot or Blogger’s blog, which is fast, easy, and simple thing to do; but however, often at times, I wondered if it appears difficult to most blogspot bloggers because, I haven’t seeing them doing it.

Personally, I love changing a background image of my blogger’s blog from time to time; though, some bloggers may want to advice keeping a static background image in order to keep returning visitors acquainted with the site.

Some years back, Blogspot which is another name for Google’s blogger blogging services came up with a new template designer as a solution to solving bloggers the stress of adding certain codes into the customized template for changing blog background images. 

The new template designer provided by Google blogger is a default template designer with verities of background images you can choose from; and it covers the fact that you can now insert your personal background image, if decided not choose from the default image options provides in your template customization panel. 

With default template designer, it is very fast, easy and simple to add or change background image in blogspot or blogger; and that’s what I’ll walk you through in this article.

Using blogger or blogspot template designer, the few step by step guidelines to adding or changing background image are as follows:

At this time, the entire background image dialog will open so you now have varieties of image options to choose from the pre-built background images offered by Blogger. The images is arranged in a categories of folders (like – business, art, etc), and vertically or descending manner. 

After choosing your preferred background image from the image categories folder, simply click on “Apply to blog” as appeared at the top right of the template customization panel so you can successfully see your background image added your blog.

Uploading your own Blogger background image. 


Be informed however that, you can upload your personal designed image, or third party image as your blog background image form your personal set of photo graphic. The rule is that, such image must be large to fit the screen size of your blog.

In order to do that, right on top of the image categories folders is the personal provided option of adding your image, or third party image. It appears as “upload image”. Simply click on it and your computer upload browser files selection will appear. Choose your image by clicking ‘browse’ of the pop up computer window and click ‘upload’.  After that, click on the orange tab - “done”.

At this juncture, you can set the properties of your image by clicking “title”, which help you decide either to align image setting to the left, right, top, down or center.
