CHANGING THE HOME PAGE BACKGROUND IMAGE IN CARBON

 

 

To edit the home page background image first make sure you’re on the home page template in the ProPhoto customizer.

Background Image Sizing

 

We sized all the header images in the Carbon theme to be 2000 x 800px @72dpi. We generally save as 5 quality JPEG in photoshop or about 50% or less in Lightroom. To maximize the quality but keep a small file size we also use JPEGMINI, which is free image optimizer on the web.

×Keep in mind our size settings are just guidelines for the design, you can upload whatever size you want, if you want the header to be smaller you would upload an image with the same width but a smaller height.
