What is Parallax Scrolling?

One big web design trend of the moment is parallax scrolling, which involves the background moving at a slower rate to the foreground, creating a 3D effect as you scroll down the page. It can sometimes be overwhelming, but when used sparingly it can provide a nice, subtle element of depth

Step 1


<!– Container element –>

<div class=”parallax”></div>


Step 2



.parallax {

/* The image used */

background-image: url(“img_parallax.jpg”);

/* Set a specific height */

height: 500px;

/* Create the parallax scrolling effect */

background-attachment: fixed;

background-position: center;

background-repeat: no-repeat;

background-size: cover;
