Can anyone advise me on creating a web page background with a similar effect to this one ? http://www.richarrismusic.info/resources/rhb.jpg

It's about as simple as it gets. It's just a html page with an image centred on it.

I did wonder if you meant how was the image created. If that's your question, there are at least a couple of possibilities. First, it was drawn by an artist or second, it was a photograph manipulated in a graphics program like the GIMP.

Well if you are that lazy you can just copy the code of a background that you like. Or you can choose to do what LastChip stated above.

Thanks for the replies. To explain further, what I am looking for is the filter in a program such as Photoshop to obtain a similar effect to this web page background.

I did wonder if that's what you were asking.

I can't speak of Photoshop, but in the GIMP, you can use FX-Foundry --> Artistic --> Quick Sketch which will give you a good starting point for a "pencil" style image.

Just take the image you want to render and apply that filter. You could then either use it as is, or apply other filters to enhance, or change the result (sharpen, blur, brightness, contrast, etc.).

And best of all, the GIMP is free!
