Can anyone recommend some reliable sites to download web page backgrounds from? I had to create a form off site and would like to try to match somewhat the background of my main site.

why not use the same background image?

I had to use a special online service to create and host my registration form because the Joomla extension just wouldn't do what I needed. So I don't have the same templates or anything available.

Have you told them what you are doing and ask them for the image files?
It is also easy to "leach" the images from most web sites. Try placing your mouse in a blank area with only a background. Right click. Select save image as or save background as ... depending on your browser.

<Have you told them what you are doing and ask them for the image files?>
?? Told who? There is a place to load a background image in the template I'm creating for the form site. I'm wanting to find something similar to what is on our main site.
Otried right-clicking on the background on the main site--no save image as background setting available.

The special online service that is hosting my registration form. I assume that is the background you want.
Ah ... maybe it is the image you have on your own Joomla site. If is is then the image files are in the template's folder on your site.
Which web browser are you using?
What is the URL/web address for the site?

I want the registration form background to emulate the one on my Joomla site. Midnight blue background with white balls sort of like snowflakes.
ain site is at www.okspeakersball.com. Reserve now will take you to the registration form created at and hosted on FormStacks' site.
Thanks for your input, Boyd.

Here is the "snowflake" image from the main page. It is transparent except for the flakes and placed over a solid color background.
Hope that helps.
