Newbie here! How to ad background image?

How do i add a background image to my site? So it goes behind everything and not on top!

You can add “background: url (image/path.jpg);” to the body element in the external stylesheet.

Hi noob!!!
==:)

Seriously tho, you add bg images with the " background: " or "background-image: " property… this image in then in the BACK of everything CONTAINED in the element. Yeah, the HTML/ BODY tags contain ALL elements so… adding it to the BODY puts it behin everything else on the page… but for finer control, remember that you just want to put the bg image in the PARENT element of whatever you want in front of it. Keep this in mind as you read the link sdt76 so kindly provided.

Thanks guys.
