How do I view backgrounds in Encore?

Add backgrounds to your yearbook pages

In the library, select the backgrounds tab to see all the background images that are available to you.

There are many simplyCreate backgrounds that are available for you. To create a custom background, click the + sign at the bottom right of the screen. Custom backgrounds need to be 300 dpi, 18.5 inches x 12.5 inches (or 5550 pixels x 3750 pixels) and in RGB color format.

You can either ‘Browse’ and select an image, or you can ‘drag and drop’ an image to be used as a background. The option to add from Google Drive is available as well.
