Guidelines and best practices for optimal results

The optimal size for your background image is one that can cover a desktop/laptop monitor display. In most cases, 1920ร—1200 pixels should be sufficient.

Considerations when using background images

Background images offer an extra, immersive layer for visitors browsing your Flipbook via a desktop browser. As such, please note that background images are not visible on mobile browsers.
