Adding a Background to a Card
For step-by-step instructions that explain how to add card backgrounds, check out the eWallet Tutorials.
Start eWallet on your Windows PC and select "eWallet Tutorials" from the Help Center.
Choose the type of device you are working with and pick question 20, "Adding a background graphic."
Linking Pictures vs. Inserting Pictures
eWallet lets you choose between inserting and linking pictures to your cards. We recommend linking pictures
whenever possible. A linked picture makes for a smaller, faster-synching wallet file, and it allows you to use the
same picture multiple times without ever changing the size of the wallet.
In addition, inserted pictures are encrypted, and the more you are encrypting and decrypting, the longer it
will take to open and close the file. For pictures like these, which contain no sensitive information, encrypting
isn't necessary, making linking a better option.
How Much Space Do They Take Up?
Theount of space the card backgrounds take up depends on the device. Approximate sizes are as follows:

- Pocket PC: 102KB
- Pocket PC, High-Res: 210KB
- Smartphone: 90KB

And remember, you can use any JPG or BMP as a card background. These are just a few to let you get started.
