    Default Re: Tutorial - Creating Website Backgrounds

    On page 5 of the tutorial, I said you can rotate the tiling background. And you can. There is only one problem, as I found out the hard way. Instead of repeating one small tile endlessly to fill the background, if you edit the pattern on the pasteboard and rotate the tile image, it creates one large image which loads slowly and almost after the fact. My tile became a 1+MB file and this was for a mobile site!

    If you want to rotate a background, create a new tile pattern that is rotated to begin with and then create a new xarabackground_.xar file.
