Garden with Insight v1.0 Help: Backdrop chooser window

A backdrop in Garden with Insight is a picture that is drawn behind your garden. You can use any bitmap file as your backdrop, or you can decide not to use a backdrop. In the Choose backdrop window you can set these options.

The backdrop chooser window

If you choose Use backdrop from bitmap file, you can change the bitmap displayed by clicking on the ellipse button and choosing a bitmap (.bmp) file. Windows bitmap files with 16 or 256 colors, or with 24-bit color, can be used. You will see your bitmap under the name of the file you chose.

If you choose Don't use bitmap, you must choose the garden size in pixels and the background color for the window. Type in a reasonable garden size (you might want to use a size smaller than the resolution of your screen, say 400 x 400 or so). Click on the rectangle next to the words Background color and choose a color from the window that appears.
