Added a gallery of background images, free for use

+25 votes

I have created an image gallery of background images for profiles.  Feel free to snag and use on profile pages.

Go to Karen's Image Sandbox FreeSpace Page

Click on any of the images

Scroll down on the right to Set as Background Image 

Follow the instructions to set the image as your profile background.

Thanks, Karen! I am always on the lookout for some terrific background images.
That's so cool, Karen. Thanks!
You are welcome!
Thanks Leah, I really like the one with the ship in black and white
Thank you Leah. Just added that great ship to a migrating ancestors profile - looks fantastic :)
That's great, Leah! Thanks for sharing your talents with the community. :-)
Thanks so much.  Just what I was looking for!
Thank you for sharing, Karen. You have some really good ones there!

I think it's a great way to personalize your own profile. Now everyone will know what color I like best. :)

Not everyone is keen on the topic of using background images. I find they add no value myself.

Thats okay.  I like them, but I know other people don't.  For me, its like a shadowbox that brings the text forward.  Thanks for your input!

I love the background images. It really personalizes the profiles, but I do understand why some people would dislike them. I have put a couple on some of my ancestors that are very loud, and the information on the page disappeared.

It really is a matter of personal preference, but I think also the pattern you pick.

I have been looking for a long time for something for my background because Susan Laursens looked so great.

Thank you for all of this information.
