Re: Setting up a gallery and albums to look amazing

You'll need to enable phplugins site wide and enable custom CSS within the phplugins file. … _phplugins … custom_css

Then add the proper code to the CSS file. See this from the CE3 docs: … ound-image

You can try different background-attachment property values. Scroll moves the image up and down with the page content, fixed will leave it in a fixed position.
You might want image-repeat set to no-repeat.
(You can google the CSS properties for more info)

Make sure the background color to all the page sections (masthead, block, grid, nav, footer, etc) are set to transparent

The semi-transparency of the background image needs to be done in Photoshop.
