The Jupiter Page Background Image Position can be a challenge with certain images. Sometimes the background image added behind your page winds up looking horribly cut off. So how can we improve the Jupiter Theme background images?

Background Color & Texture

Jupiter only allows for general background-position directions.┬áThis can be done per page using the Background Color & Texture settings’ Background position buttons.

There you can choose for 9 positions:
And this is a nice feature and is enough most of the time. But sometimes you simply need more control. And for that you need to add some nice CSS.

CSS Background Position

With CSS you can position the background image more fine grained with percentages or using a fixed amount of pixels. This allows you to position these images the way you want. Especially useful when you add portrait size images and need to make them fit and display well. You could make all these title background images taller to make things fit. But then at about 700px height they will take up too much space really. Visitors like images, but also need to be able to read text right away.

So what I did is add:

.page-template-default .mk-header {
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position: 20% 35%;

to the Visual Composer’s CSS for that page. This piece of CSS with your own choice of percentages for the background-position allows for you to tweak the background image position to your heart’s desire. I do hope we will be able to do this without CSS in the future with Jupiter but for now this seems to be the way to go.
