Use parallax effect in a section

In this article, you will learn how to create a section with a parallax effect to boost the visual experience of your page. You can install PageFly for Free here.

  • First, choose Add element icon > Layout > drag Full Section to the page.
  • With the section chosen > navigate to the Styling tab.

  • In the BACKGROUND section >Background Style, choose Parallax > choose image for Image Source
  • Click into the More Settings button and set the Normal for Parallax Speed
  • Adjust the Padding and Margin in the Styling tab for the image.

Important: When a fixed value is set for the Padding and Margin in the “All” view, it will be applied to all other views (tablet and mobile) and makes the design not responsive by default anymore. Scroll down to learn how to fix this.

Hit Publish and view the page.

Optimize mobile design

  • Switch to Mobile view.
  • Select the Section > Styling tab > SPACING > set 0px for the bottom-padding so the section won’t take up the whole mobile screen and ruin the mobile experience.
