Background image in blocksy?

I;m using Local on my computer to edit a website, with free version of blocksy as the theme. I simply downloaded the blocksy zip file and unzipped it into the themes directory. But I can’t for the life of me find out how to change the background image! The version of blocksy I have allows change of background colors, but nowhere in any of the menus I’ve found so far is there any option to have a background image. I’m using version 2.0.50. What am I missing? This seems like such a basic operation that I’m annoyed with myself for not being able to do it. But nonetheless, I simply can’t – and any advice would be welcome!

Even on the [documentation](, if you search for “background image” you don’t get a direct hit.
