    Make My Own Background Transparent

    Asked by jeffrey_c_davis on January 26, 2017 at 08:24 AM


    I see how to upload my own background image but I want the form itself to be transparent so the image can be seen through the form wherever there is not input boxes.  I'm not sure if you have to do this using a background image or a theme.  I'm looking at your Sunset Hair Theme (for example) and I want to have my form like that except I want to use my own uploaded image.  Please advise...

    To accomplish what you're trying to achieve, you need to add a Page background to your form first.

    (Please see the screenshot below to learn how you can add an image to your form's page background)

    Please note that you can upload your own image just like what I did in the screenshot above.

    Once you've done that, you now need to make the form background transparent.

    You will find the instruction on how you can make your form background transparent in this guide:


    I hope this helps. If you have any further questions regarding this, please feel free to contact us again anytime.

    Thank you.
