Hi

we plan to support this soon properly, for the moment you can:
just upload a larger image, which will be used as a background
while its selected, you can press up/down in the place menu, to arrange its visibility level, I mean press down to push it back to the background, and 'up' to bring it forward.

all the examples using images for background have been done this way...
like this one:

It doesn't really help. because when you are showing the prezi, suddenly it jups to the orginal background...

Same remark : i've added a large image background, on which i put text objects . when i do my path and zoom on text, when i play my prezi, it swaps my image background and show me the original background , is it because the zoom is too high ?
thank yoiu

RCC,

> is it because the zoom is too high

Yes I think that is the problem. You might try whether importing e.g. pdf instead of jpg (or better yet: use swf) makes the problem 'go away'.

Kind regards,
