Background Images

Background images allow users to view their workspaces in a friendly and relatable manner.

The yellow cross hair denotes the origin of the workspace for assistance when aligning images.

Importing a New Background Image

It is permissible to select multiple background images for use within the programmer and overview screens. To insert a new background image within a space click on the photo icon next to the space and a new background will appear. It is then possible to drag an image file onto the space.

Use the slider at the bottom of the Spaces tab to adjust the sizing of your space relative to the image.

Deleting a Background Image

Highlight the required background image and right-click. Choose "Delete Background".

Replacing Background Images

Highlight the required background image and right-click. Choose "Use background for all cues associated with this Space"

Images have a maximum size of 5mb. Images larger than 5mb will be automatically compressed by Atlas.
