    Background problems


    Perhaps is a small introduction for a newbie on this forum (like me) a good idea:
    I'm a Beglian chemical engineering student and I'm building my first website:
    ... but unfortunately I've stumbled upon a BIG problem.

    Like you can see, I use a picture as a background: a paper "glued" to a a wall.
    I would like that the main text appears on this paper.

    But here is the problem: I'm bounded to the length of this paper. I can't write longer texts than the length of the paper.
    Here you can see the problem:
    The bottom part of the text falls out of (actually below) the paper.

    Do you have ideas about how I can solve this WITHOUT losing the background picture?

    I did not think about this during the designing phase, so now I'm really stuck with this problem.
    By the way: you will notice that the website is not finished yet.

    I've seen this image before - it's on a fee template from TemplateMonster, I think. Unfortunately because it is a static image, you will heither have to edit the image or fit the text to the image.
    To edit the image, you'll need to cut it into three parts from top to bottom, with the middle part being repeatable. Then make 3 divs on your page, with the top of the image as the background for the div of the top of the page, the middle image on repeat-y as the background for the middle div (the text content) and the bottom of the image for the div of the bottom of the page.
    This is not very easy to do unless you are very good with Photoshop or some other image editing program.
