Changing your Background

It is possible to change the background image of the VLE from a list of existing images or from one that you have uploaded yourself.
The maximum file size that can be used as a background is 10MB, although using a file as large as this is not advisable. Using large files as background images could slow down the Frog VLE due to the amount of data needed to display the image.
Note: Frog supports the following file types:
  • JPEG (.jpg)
  • GIF (.gif)
  • PNG (.png)
