Tuesday Tutorial: How to utilize the wallpapers feature to personalize your webmixes

 

In this weeks Tuesday Tutorial we want to show you how you can a add a wallpaper to your webmix. You can choose from preset images, a selection of colors or upload your own image. To avoid your image appearing tiled, use a picture that has at least 1600 x 1200 pixels. Note: If you share a webmix, the user will not see the wallpaper in the preview version, e.g. www.symbaloo.com/mix/tuesdaytutorial. But once the webmix is added to an account, the wallpaper will show up again. Using this feature is a great way to personalize your webmixes, making them more distinguishable and thus is helping you to keep all your resources organized.
