We are working in the new Website Builder, the business is renting Kayaks and we are looking for an appropriate background image. Are more themes and background images being developed?

Les I assume you looked through the image library and found nothing there appropriate. I normally use client photos for headers. If they don't have one I send them out to get a good photo of their business or something that works for their business. There are also free images on line as well as stock photos from various sites (pricey).

In your case I'd say send the Kayak guys out to hit the water and take some photos. Or line up a bunch of kayaks against a building or leaning against a hitching rail with a river in the background. You get the idea and it would give you an original look rather than the cookie cutter look of templates.

Hi Susan, Thanks for your reply. The templates that are offered seem to fit perfectly, with the colors so radiant. With the new Web Builder offering templates, it seems that not all subjects and images have not yet been offered. In the meantime, I will search for an appropriate image. Thank you again.

What gets me with the new templates is that the designers are placing an awful lot of importance on the images and they stick the navigation up top where it can barely be seen and it's the vital part of a website. Of course that can be changed, but it seems they would want to offer templates that can be used 'right out of the box' and put those navigations front and center. Just saying ... :)

Hope you find a good image!

Les, I am sure that they will add more templates at some point, but I don't know when. And quite honestly, something as specific as Kayaking, is probably not likely in itself, so if you find one you really like, you should be able to swap the image.

Les, Morguefile offers free commercial use images. I just did a search for "Kayak" and they have a few nice ones.  https://morguefile.com/search/Morguefile/1/kayak/ . Here is the general image license terms: https://morguefile.com/license
