This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Nice Backgrounds

Description

Manage large adaptive (mobile-ready) images and automatically apply them to areas on your WordPress site as backgrounds.
Pull beautiful photos from Unsplash using the in-built browser, or supply your own images from uploads and supplied URLs.

Usage

Once activated, go to Appearance > Nice Backgrounds. You can create one or more ‘sets’ of background images with
different settings.

Note: This plugin typically deals with resizing very large images, if you’re having problems make sure your memory limit
is sufficiently high enough to deal with some occasional heavy lifting.

Note: PNG images that are either very large or are 24-bit can be problematic. The exact details of this are yet to be
determined.

Just the other day I read a fortune cookie that said something about giving credit. I threw it away, but here is a
list of stuff I looked at to get some ideas of what to do for this plugin:
