The second background fades in when you zoom about a third of the way into the prezi

Subtle Visual Effect
A simple atmospheric background can add a subtle sense of environment, or even invoke a mood or feeling in your prezi.
By subtly changing the color or texture of a background, you can add some slight movement or interest to your prezi without causing any distraction.
You can use different backgrounds to indicate a change in your story, whether it be between locations, topics, or sections. This is a an easy way to create a metaphor in your presentation.
Or you can get creative and use it to hide special surprises and secrets within your Prezi.
Avoid placing content on a transition between two backgrounds.

It creates a ghost effect and can make your prezi look messy or distracting.
To avoid this, keep zooming in or out until only one of the backgrounds is clearly visible
For best results, use images that are no less
than 3000 pixels wide
Keep content within the edges of the background
Seeing the edges of the background images can make a prezi look sloppy and unpolished.
Try to avoid
extremely busy backgrounds if possible*
The background should stay in the background. It's meant to enhance your content, not distract from it.
Avoid this by keeping frames within the edges of the background.
If you zoom into a frame and the background edges are still visible, you may just have to move the frame inward a bit.
If the images are too small they will become pixelated when you zoom in.
This is especially important for your final background because you will be zoomed in very closely on it.
*Busy backgrounds can be acceptable in cases where they are meant to stand alone and not be a backdrop to your content. (ex. change in story)
However if you still feel a busy background is necessary make sure you make your content easily readable.
