Add a Background Image
You can add a background image to a form to make it more pleasant to view. For example, you
could add a company logo or a photograph that appears in your company’s marketing materials.
A background image, while not necessary or essential to a form, can make data entry a bit more
interesting, simply because the form looks less form-like. And, when data entry is less boring and
more interesting, the person entering the data is less likely to make mistakes. A background image
on a form remains fixed, even as you change records.
