Usage

Once activated, go to Appearance > Nice Backgrounds. You can create one or more ‘sets’ of background images with
different settings.

Note: This plugin typically deals with resizing very large images, if you’re having problems make sure your memory limit
is sufficiently high enough to deal with some occasional heavy lifting.

Note: PNG images that are either very large or are 24-bit can be problematic. The exact details of this are yet to be
determined.

Credits

Just the other day I read a fortune cookie that said something about giving credit. I threw it away, but here is a
list of stuff I looked at to get some ideas of what to do for this plugin:
