This is most likely caused by an image that was added to the backgrounds list that was in the wrong format.


Some .jpg images are created in a CMYK format instead of RGB. CMYK images are meant to be used for print purposes and do not work well in EasyWorship. It is best to add the image to the media area first. If the thumbnail does not build there, the image should not be added to the backgrounds list.


Resetting your backgrounds database to the default backgrounds will fix this problem.
