  • After your image is uploaded, you’ll be able to select the portion of the image you’d like to show based on the amount of content in the module. You’ll be able to adjust background image placement later if you add/remove content from the module.
  • If you decide that you don’t like the changes you’ve made, you have the option to reset the background back to its original blank state or readjust the image positioning if you add/remove content.
