    @darylscottphillips, on the Premium themes, such as Avid, they can be purchased from us for use on sites, but we do not sell them for use on self-hosted WordPress installations. To purchase Premium themes, such as Avid by The Theme Foundry, self-hosted users purchase directly from the theme author.

    To make the image you have in .body-content fixed (not scrolling with content) add the following CSS.

    I hope the above gets you going.
