Parallax Banner

Creating a parallax effect for a banner can be achieved using CSS and JavaScript. The basic idea of the parallax effect is that the background content (e.g., an image) and the foreground content (e.g., text) move at different speeds when the user scrolls, giving the illusion of depth.

Here's a basic example of how you can do this using HTML, CSS, and a bit of JavaScript:


<div class="parallax-banner">
  <div class="banner-content">
    <h1>Your Banner Text</h1>


.parallax-banner {
  /* set the height of the banner */
  height: 250px;
  /* set the background image */
  background-image: url('path-to-your-image.jpg');
  /* set the initial position of the image */
  background-position: left 0;
  /* set the size of the image */
  background-size: cover;
  /* don't repeat the image */
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  /* fix the position of the image */
  background-attachment: fixed;
  /* center the text */
  display: flex;
  justify-content: center;
  align-items: center;

.banner-content {
  text-align: center;
  color: white;


// In jQuery if you like
$(window).scroll(function() {
  var scrollTop = $(window).scrollTop();
  var imgPos = scrollTop / 6 + 'px';
  $('.parallax-banner').css('background-position', 'left -' + imgPos);

// Or in plain JavaScript
window.addEventListener('scroll', function() {
  var scrollTop = window.pageYOffset || document.documentElement.scrollTop;
  var imgPos = scrollTop / 6 + 'px';
  var parallaxBanner = document.querySelectorAll('.parallax-banner');
  for(var i = 0; i < parallaxBanner.length; i++) {
    parallaxBanner[i].style.backgroundPosition = 'left -' + imgPos;

This basic implementation may not work perfectly for all situations, but it gives you an idea of the techniques involved.

If you'd rather not use JavaScript, you could look into CSS-only solutions using perspective and transform properties, though they might not be as widely supported or as flexible.

Remember to replace 'path-to-your-image.jpg' with the actual path to your image. You may also need to adjust the var imgPos = scrollTop / 6 + 'px'; or 'left -' + imgPos values in the JavaScript depending on how you want the parallax effect to behave (the higher the number you divide by, the slower the image will scroll).
