Make your website even more visual with new background options
A brand new addition to the website editor that we’re very excited about is the background image feature.
This new option allows you to easily set an image as a background for an area of content within your website, including full-width sections and columns.
You can even pinpoint the exact part of the image that you want to appear as the background, allowing you to focus in on specific details as the image scales down on different screen sizes. This provides you with a greater level of control when selecting backgrounds for your website.
Please note that the new background options are only available on responsive it’seeze websites. If you have not yet upgraded to a responsive website, please contact your local consultant or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
New image editing options now available
We recently added a new feature to the it’seeze website editor that allows you to add colour overlays to the images on your website.
This new option is ideal if you want to make images match your website’s colour scheme, brighten or darken an image, or make text easier to read when using the text-on-image component.
Greater choice with new CSV options
When downloading CSV files from your shop, you can now either choose the standard ‘One line per order’ version, or the new ‘One line per item’ version.
This new option includes four additional columns – item quantity, item code, item name, and item variant.
