In version 9 we can set the background to an image, however I'd like to save this into a stylesheet that can be installed.

sample image you want to use as background:

image = Import["ExampleData/lena.tif"];

Create cell that you need to put in style definition:

 System`BackgroundAppearance -> image] // CellPrint

enter image description here

Open stylesheet editor (Format -> Edit StyleSheet...)

Copy the cell you just created and install stylesheet.

  • $\begingroup$ does this work also in version 8.x? Why is System`BackgroundAppearance displayed in red? $\endgroup$ – magma Mar 13 '13 at 13:28
  • $\begingroup$ It doesn't work in v8. Color should be black. $\endgroup$ – halmir Mar 13 '13 at 17:46
