Hello I am trying to create a document with multiple pages. However, I need to add a specific background to the first page and another background for the rest of the pages.

I am currently using:



{scale=1.0, color=black, opacity=1.0, angle=0, 

I would like to use something like this instead of ifoddpages.

\if page = 1 
  • Please try the following: \ifnum\value{page}>1 \includegraphics{...}\else\includegraphics{...}\fi. There is a space between 1 and \includegraphics{...}. Aug 21, 2017 at 6:45

I haven't tested this solution, but according to this thread, in order to detect the page number, you can do this:

\ifnum\value{page}>1 \includegraphics{...}\else\includegraphics{...}\fi
  • 1
    Thank you, my issue was resolved using \ifnum\thepage=1 command
