CardBoard now supports adding background images to your boards. Make your board your own with the new capability.
Whether you use it to create custom templates, add a background to your cards, use pictures to illustrate your ideas, or anything else, read on to learn how to use this powerful new feature.
Adding Background Images
Within the toolbar you will see a new icon:
Drag this to place a background image, as you would a card or free text.
Once placed, choose an image, and it will be added to the board.
Moving Background Images
Background images can be dragged across the board just as free text can. Cards and free text always appear above images.
Resizing Background Images
To adjust the size of an image, click on it and drag the icon in the bottom-right corner.
Background images automatically resize along with the rest of the board when the board is zoomed in or out.
Adjusting the order of Background Images
When multiple images overlap, you can control which ones appear above others. By default, images appear in the order they were uploaded, newest in front. To change this, right click on an image you want to bring to the front or send to the back, and select the menu option.
