Using a Template

For best results, make sure your content completely covers the template, reaching every edge of the image:

An example of a dragon background image fit to the template (with the template still partially visible

Note: For illustration, the template here is shown atop the image.

Keep any important features (like text, logos, etc.) out of the danger zone around the edges and along the spine.

For a perfect fit, make sure the image you add to Vellum matches the dimensions of the template.

When your image is ready, you can use it for a Custom Heading Background or a Full Page Image.
