Background for 10gal Tank

Ok. I'm retarded and need some help putting in a background for my 10 gal tank. Does this go on the inside of the tank or the outside. And I take it that if it does on the inside that the blue film on the back will stick to the glass when wet. Do I have this right? TIA.

The plastic background is taped to the back of the aquarium, on the outside. Usually, the prints are two-sided. One side usually has a photo print, and the other side is usually a solid color, or a graduated blue. That way you can choose which side you want to be visible.

You can tape it, or some people like to use a thin film of water (or cooking oil) between the background and glass, then squeegee out any bubbles, and it will cling like it was glued there.
