I tried my self to change the background color and after searching through the forum I have some questions.
As Mikek said
"'The background is created by images so you would need to modify the following files:

I tried to change the s5_bg.jpg and the exact dimensions are 234x207pixels
so I changed it with a small icon and it was repeated several times side by side in order to cover the whole background.
I want to make my own background but I have to know the dimension of it.
Which are the exact dimensions of thoses 5_bg_top, s5_bg_bottom, s5_bg images?
Need help.
Thank you.

exact dimensions are:-

s5_bg_top - 1500 x 269
s5_bg_bottom - 1500 x 800px
s5_bg - 234 x 207px

the s5_bg is only small therefore is set to repeat.... if you just want a small icon to show you might want to set the repeat to no in the template.css

if wanting your background to take up the entire screen adjust the sizing accordingly (the top and bottom sizes should help you work this out)

easy way is to unzip the template file, open  the appropriate files in photoshop, make your changes, save (keep the same file name) , upload via ftp .

I want to add a background image and use the repeating background. Normally I do this by adding a background image to the body and adding a repeating background to a wrapper. How can I add a wrapper div to this template?
