Little Image, Big Effect. Tiled background now supported

3x3Links does already support uploading and positioning your own background image for some time. This is especially great for company logos.

Since today, as a new option, you can now also tile your background image. This is just great if you want to add a cool Web 2.0 effect to your page, without slowing it down by a large background image file.

For creating your personal tile graphic, you might want to check out the Web 2.0 Stripe Generator.


  1. Very cool! I also have a video on making a seamless pattern in Photoshop, if that might help someone. You can make a small pattern with this simple technique that will tile perfectly over any size background:

    I love 3X3 Links, and now it's even better! Thanks!

  2. I don't see this option in 3X3. What am I doing wrong?

  3. Hello MrMoto, did you went to "Options" -> "Personal Links" and then found the "Background Image" title option? There should be an option to set the "Background Position" to "Tiled". Maybe you have to press F5 to refresh the page, since 3x3 uses caching quite a lot. If you have any problems, let me know, I will try to fix it. Let me know, best regards, Federico of 3x3Links.

  4. Unrelated question:

    I found you on and i think the idea is great, i'm always looking for shortcuts, but it made me nervous when using my google log in, do you guys now have my google acct info and log ins? might be a naive question, but please let me know. thanks in advance.

  5. Good question Anonymous!
