Hi,

Is there anyway that I can easily change the thumbnail background from white to something else, maybe even a gradient I made in Photoshop and saved out at that size?

You should be able to set that on the border tab.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Eric, I was looking and I only have border color. I don't have background color. If I'm missing it somewhere, please let me know.

Chris, What I've always done is prep my images. I put them on the background color that I want for my site. Then the background always matches.

Did you know that Web Form Builder can be used for both simple and complicated forms and that it's not limited to the default fonts and buttons? Take a look at a form we developed for WindowTinting.com.

Can you post a link to your shop showing the issue?

If you are using Photoshop, you can record a macro and then do a batch on all your images to create the background on them. You can do all 500 in a matter of minutes.

I don't have the site updated, I only have it on my local machine, so I don't have an updated page to show you. I think I've figured out what I'm going to do about the thumbnail backgrounds, but now I have another question, so I'll start a new thread for that.

Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
