Parallax Tools and Techniques

The parallax effect has been around for a while and since we noticed that our readers really like the technique, we decided to gather a few tools and tutorials to help you implement parallax scrolling in your own projects. This effect creates an illusion of depth and movement in the screen, and if well applied, can result in an engaging experience for the user. Like any other effect, the key is moderation. Using parallax to give your website some depth and added interest is great, but try to avoid too much of it or you may end up with a site that has too much going on.

    These are excellent techniques for dynamic website layouts. Studios and design agencies often couple parallax scrolling with big responsive background images. It’s a great design concept and runs perfectly in modern browsers with CSS3 support.

    Excellent list of resources Gisele, we’ve really grown fond of parallax elements (when used correctly, of course). We definitely agree that people have gone a bit overboard with parallax as of late, but when used correctly it can really set off a design!

    P.S. Those are some sweet tutorials Mohiuddin Parekh, thanks for the links.
