We recommend using a gradient to a flat color when the main design of the wallpaper ends, so it looks as if it continues outward.  The visual result could be better for users with high resolutions (screen width more than 1260px). Wallpaper background hex color to appear to the left and right of the wallpaper but not in the center of the page. Wallpaper creative may not deliver any sort of scripting, i.e. Java script. The wallpaper may include one complementary click thru button;  this button can be jpg, gif, flash, png.

Apart from simple static backgrounds, we can develop Background Skins which feature Flash elements including video. This is great for running promotions like Movie Trailers, TV Shows (such as cooking shows) or new product launches. The ideas for background advertising campaigns are endless.
