    I've added an image for the background and played around with the advanced features to have it as a cover, fixed, repeat, etc and can't seem to get the image to fill the entire background (i.e. cuts off and is blank at the bottom) or it runs too long and I lose the bottom of my image.  Not sure what setting I need to adjust so that the image fits.  If I need to resize my image, I can do that too but not sure what it needs to be before uploading.

    I tried this in CSS based on another forum but it still cuts off the bottom of the trees:

    .supernova {


    background: url("https://www.jotform.com/uploads/vfstakeyouth/form_files/camp%20background.5c7f2fc8d68df2.31184107.jpg") no-repeat center center fixed;


    -webkit-background-size: cover;


    -moz-background-size: cover;


    -o-background-size: cover;


    background-size: cover;


    }

    Please try using percentage for the positioning, try below custom CSS codes:

    .supernova {

        background: url(https://www.jotform.com/uploads/vfstakeyouth/form_files/camp%20background.5c7f2fc8d68df2.31184107.jpg) no-repeat;

        -webkit-background-size: cover;

        -moz-background-size: cover;

        -o-background-size: cover;

        background-size: cover;

        background-attachment: fixed;

        background-position: 100% 70%;

    }


    My screen is 21", 1920 x 1080 resolution, getting this view:

    Thanks.  That improved it to match the image that you are sharing but it means that it's only showing 70% of the image and still not the entire image but you get the majority of it so I think it's fine.  It would be helpful to know if the images need to be sized to a certain ratio to ensure that the whole image is captured.  In this image, it's fine but I can see it being an issue for other images.

    The size of the background image would depend on the device that your users would most likely use. So if your users will use a mobile device, you can tailor the image for mobile devices, but if they use a desktop, you will need to use a larger image with high resolution.
