Eight steps to changing your LinkedIn background. Note, this is only possible via desktop at this time.

Step 1 - Click on your photo

Step 2 - Click the pencil icon to the right of your profile photo

You should now be on a page that says 'Edit Intro' at the top left

Step 3 - Click the pencil icon on the blue background. This is top right beneath an 'X'

Step 4 - Click on 'Change Photo'

Your office/home network page will pop up

Step 5 - Select image you want to display. I found a landscape image works better

Step 6 - Click open, Photo will upload and then you can edit how it looks

Step 7 - Click 'Apply'

Step 8 - Click 'Save' and voila! You've banished the blue background
