Container Background Parallax Options
Last Update: February 13, 2023
Container Background Images can also have a parallax effect applied to them. There are a range of options with regard how the image should move. These options can be found in the BG tab of any container element, once a background image has been chosen.
Below is an example of a container with a background image that has a parallax effect applied to it. The direction chosen is left, and the speed is the default .3. As you can see as you scroll, the image moves to the left. On a mobile device the image will not move as Enable Parallax on Mobile has been set to No on this container.
There are three parallax related options. The first is Background Parallax. There are six options here.
There is also an option that controls the speed of the image movement – The value should be between 0.1 and 1.0. A lower number means slower scrolling speed. Higher scrolling speeds will enlarge the image more.
Mobile Parallax Options
For parallax movement on mobiles, there is the Enable Parallax on Mobile option. This works only for the up/down/left and right options. To disable parallax effects on mobile when using one of these options, set this option to No. As the description explains, parallax effects can cause slowdowns when your site is viewed on mobile devices.
