The syntax for the background in the json theme file is:

 

the syntax for the background is:

                "outspace": [

                    {

                        "image": {

                            "name": "yourimagename",

                            "scaling": "Fit",

							"url": "data:image/jpeg;base64,lotsoflettersandnumbers"

                        },

                        "transparency": 50

                    }

                ],

Use this brilliant site to encode your image: https://www.base64-image.de/

Click 'copy image' and paste it in the 'lotsoflettersandnumbers'

@Tahreem24, it's not just Power BI that can't access your image at:

C:\A folder\Another Folder\ExampleBackground.png  

 

Maybe try a web-based location instead, and put the full path to the image in the url element?

 

There's a page here that offers a similar solution to the above, by the way.

The link for this solution goes to a page that has been taken down. 

Could someone please post the solution here if they know how to do it. 

Hi Marzipanly,

 

Yes, you can go to view option in Power BI desktop and customise themes or use theme gallery as well. I am attaching the screenshot.

Thanks for the reply. Using Customize themes I can change the colour of the background on all pages, but I can't add an image. It As far as I can tell, if you want to change the image background then you need to edit the theme's .json file, but I can't figure out the right format to use for specifying the image.

What format/structure do we need to use for the URL and name of the image? Could you please complete with a full example of an image on one's local drive. 

 

I've tried the following but it doesn't work: 

 

{
               "name": "Page Background Image",
               "visualStyles": {
                        "page": {
                              "*": {
                                      "background": [
                                               {
                                                  "image": {
                                                         "name": "ExampleBackground.png",
                                                         "scaling": "Fit",
                                                         "url": "C:\A folder\Another Folder\"
                                                },
                                                "transparency": 0
                                       }
                                  ]
                           }
                    }
           }
}

 

Thanks
