About This Class

Page backgrounds, when not just plain paper tints, can add a lot to the style of any book project - but it's important to manage this so that the image, colour or texture chosen do not overpower what's on the page.

In this lesson learn how to add a different 'look' to your book project simply by changing the page colour or by adding an image as a background texture. I also show you how to sandwich two images together in case your (book) software does not allow the addition of a background image easily.
