    Richard I'm told that you have to go into the CSS file and edit the settings. If you are supported by us I'm sure our desk would be able to assist.

    I've just had more detail:

    To further expand, any changes concerning the background would need to be made within the theme.css file, every theme in Sharepoint will have one of these file included in its containing sub folder. Basically the theme.css is where all the presentational stuff like colours and images are placed whereas the master page is where all the layout and content comes from.

    To change the background they would need to edit ethier the “body” or “.ms-main” element within the css file.

    You can change the colours and most other things on a SharePoint page by using CSS in a Content Editor WebPart on the required page, this is a page specific edit, some of our schools do this as it's a quicker method if you just want basic changes. Once you have the page as you want, just copy the code to any other pages that need it.

    We have a custom CSS file on the site which only has css style we want to overwrite, in here is our body tags which include the background.

    PM me if you want any more details.
