following backgrounds are done for full screen or tiles. The images that
show some distortion in their links are the full-screen sizes. The
real files are fine!
I took the
liberty of trying something different with two of the backgrounds done on blue
construction paper. I discovered this paper is very grainy and so my
scanner picked up all the texture in different thickness (due to water
absorption etc.). It was virtually impossible to make those
seamless. The Snowman had to be bordered in Paint Shop Pro and the Snow
Splats on the blue construction paper had the tops and bottom fudged to make it
as seamless as I could. But it's not 100%. ( I recommend that as a
fixed background if you can't use text or graphics to distract from the
line.) All the rest are pretty seamless and natural.
full-screen images of the Christmas Trees and Santa I did on the sides to make
room for your own text and graphics. They reduced down for link buttons
lopsided. But the real files are fine.
