    Free background images are a great idea, so long as they aren’t big files that make loading the page really slow. I think a background image should only be visible on the dies of a white page, to make reading the content easier, but still having something interesting in the surrounds. Thanks for sharing. Some interesting ideas here.

      Hello Darren

      I like the idea on certain websites but on informational site such as this one a white background is best, easier to read and a faster load. Thanks for your fresh ideas and I agree.

      Hey John

      Yes I agree that black and white is the way to go on most sites but on certain sites people like to dress them up and make the theme go with the time of the year or holidays etc.

    These look like some very nice picture, thanks for sharing them with us.

    I do have one question though. You say white backgrounds are plain and boring, but in my experience it also makes it very easy to read and comprehend content on the site.

    If I go to a website with lots of images and colors on the background I get very distracted and it makes it hard to concentrate on what I’m looking for.

    What is your take on this?

    1. Wayne says:

      Yes I agree with this also for sites like this one the plain white backgrounds are the best but for some sites such as environmental or maybe say landscaping plus numerous other similar sites like color and background images

      I would say for most informational sites such as this one should be in white backgrounds, easier to read and you don’t want distractions.

    One of the most difficult aspects of starting a blog for a beginner is finding good high-resolution images that are copyright-free. You are right about most people using a picture-less or white background. Most people do it not out of choice but out of compulsion since they are not able to find good images of their choice. I really like the varied choices available mentioned in your article. I have bookmarked your page because I’m an aspiring blogger myself and I’ll be needing some images for my blog’s background. Thanks for a wonderful post.

      Thank you for your comment. I would be careful on which these are used on, affiliate sites for example are better with a white background (no distractions). Hope you can use some of these images.
