Adding Images in Paradise

Paradise allows you to add a hero background and slider images to display on the site.

Adding a Hero Background Image

To add your own hero background image, follow these instructions:

  1. Select the image from your PC that you want to display as a hero background image and resize it, if necessary.
  2. Copy the image to the assets/images folder.
    • If you’re testing the template locally on your PC, then simply copy the image.
    • If you’ve already uploaded the template to your host’s server, then FTP the image into the assets/images folder.
  3. Open the style.css file in a code editor and perform a search for ../images/background.jpg within the file.
  4. Change the file name to the file name of your hero background image.
    • For more information, refer to the code example.
  5. Save the file and view the updates on your PC.
    • If you’re testing locally, simply drag the index.html file into an empty tab of your favorite internet browser.
    • If you’ve already uploaded the template to your host’s server, then FTP the updated index.html file, and then view it in your browser.

Here is the code which you need to modify to display your new hero background image:

.intro {
    text-align: right;
    background-image: url("../images/background.jpg");
    background-position: center center;
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    background-attachment: fixed;
    background-size: cover;
}

Adding Project Slider Images

To add your own images, follow these instructions:

  1. Select the images from your PC that you want to showcase and resize them, if necessary.
  2. Copy those images to the assets/images folder.
    • If you’re testing the template locally on your PC, then simply copy those images.
    • If you’ve already uploaded the template to your host’s server, then FTP those images into the assets/images folder.
  3. Open the index.html file in a code editor and look for section-portfolio within the file.
  4. Change the file names to the file names of your project/portfolio images.
    • For more information, refer to the code example.
  5. Repeat step 4 as needed.
  6. Save the file and view the updates on your PC.
    • If you’re testing locally, simply drag the index.html file into an empty tab of your favorite internet browser.
    • If you’ve already uploaded the template to your host’s server, then FTP the updated index.html file, and then view it in your browser.

Here is the code which you need to modify to display your slider portfolio images:

<section id="section-portfolio" class="section portfolio">
    <div class="slide">
        <img src="assets/images/project-1.jpg" alt="">
    </div>
