We also offer advice on how to digitally SEO optimize the backgrounds so that they look great at any screen size, and so that the file size is as small as possible. There’s no point having a stunning, huge HDR photo as a background if it is going to make your page take 30 seconds to load on a mobile connection. Instead of putting yourself through that, we recommend that you take the time to learn how to take great photos or make great vector images, that will load quickly but still have the desired visual effect.
If the backgrounds that we are sharing aren’t quite what you want, then why not make your own? Take a look at our tutorial section for detailed advice on header background creation. We can explain to you how to build a background that will match your brand, wow your visitors, and convey your message clearly. There are lots of images to help you along the way. These will give you an idea of common pitfalls when it comes to graphic design, and they will show you what a good website header background should look like.
We have backgrounds to suit most niches, including backgrounds that will look good on your blog or website. There are also many generic images that could be modified to suit almost any niche. These images are great for turnkey sites, blog templates, themes, prototypes, and general design work. If you’re building out a website yourself and want to save time, or you want to communicate your ideas to a graphic designer and want to have some good placeholder graphics in the mean time, then we’re confident you’ll find these images very helpful.
It’s not easy to find the perfect images, but our team of volunteers has compiled royalty free, high-quality images from all over the web. Do what you wish with these images – but if you like them, please consider giving credit for the work – or submitting a background or two of your own to help out the next user that comes along! We’re always glad to see what other people are doing, and we’ll happily share your work. We know that it’s not easy to find a good graphic design – one that suits your tastes and that will fit with whatever you are trying to achieve with your brand. By offering a huge selection of images from different designers, we hope that we’ll be able to give most people something that they will enjoy and appreciate and that you would be proud to show off on your site.
If you aren’t a designer but want to give back to our site, please consider sharing it with your friends, family, and peers. They may find value in it, and every piece of visibility helps us to grow our database of content so that we can offer the most comprehensive and highest quality database of background images and header graphics for blogs and websites in the world.
