    Tile background will display in a tile formation across your site
    Tile Vertically background will display in a tile formation across the vertical axis of your site
    Tile Horizontally background will display in a tile formation across the horizontal axis of your site

    5. Under Position, click the square that matches the section of your site that your background should appear in.
