Garden with Insight v1.0 Help: How to stop using a backdrop picture

Not using a backdrop picture means that there will be no picture behind the soil patches and plants in the garden window, just a solid color. To stop using a backdrop picture, select Backdrop from the Options menu on the garden window.

The backdrop chooser window

In the backdrop chooser window, click on the option that says Don't use bitmap.

If you don't use a backdrop bitmap, you must specify the size of the garden so the program knows how large to make the garden window. In the two edit boxes below the Don't use bitmap option, fill in the width and height (in pixels) of the area you want to use. (If you just changed from using a bitmap, the size of the bitmap will be shown there.)

You can also choose the color of your background if you don't use a backdrop. See How to change the color of the background for details.
