Customize your page background for Morphology

Although a tutorial exists under the Basic Theme Setup, I thought I would give you a quick introduction and tutorial for Morphology as it relates to different page templates. Generally a page background for most sites lets you see the background colour or image off to the sides of a boxed layout or on very short pages. With Morphology, you can get a bit more creative, depending on the page templates you use.

Here are screenshots of a page background example when using the boxed templates:
