    @2design

    Your second post turned up blank. However, to insert a background image into your form, first upload the image to an image host like ImageShack, Photobucket or better yet, create an upload form in your JotForm account and upload the image via that form. (This third method has the advantage of overcoming the non-display of non-secure images on secure forms, as explained by Aytekin here.)

    Once you have the image's URL, do the following:

    1. In the form builder, load the form to which you want to add the image

    2. While on the Setup & Embed tab, click Preferences > Form Styles

    3. In the Inject Custom CSS section insert the following rule, substituting your image's URL for the portion highlighted in red:

    html {
    background: url(http://img812.imageshack.us/img812/3807/cherriesthumbnail.png)
    repeat fixed;
    }

    4. Close the Preferences and save the form

    For additional information on the background property, please see the following links:

    CSS Property: background
    CSS Property: background-image

    If you need clarification on anything, please let us know.
