How to Add a Background Image

Learn how to add a background image on your Maestro page or live channel.

A background image is a great way to create an immersive brand experience on your Maestro site. Background images can be added to both live channels and pages. This mimics the full brand immersion that you'd find on a platform like Netflix.

  3. Click on it to open the "Change Background" console
  4. From here you can click to upload an image or select one already added to the Library. You also have the ability to select a background color using HTML hex codes and/or the color picker. As an aside, you can either have a background image or a background color, but not both simultaneously.

Additional Note

Backgrounds are channel-specific, meaning you will need to add this image to each channel for consistency. This also means you can have different images on each page or live channel if you'd like.
