Websites with large photographic backgrounds have become increasingly popular over the last few years. As internet speed and page-loading time become faster it has come to be beneficial and easier to design a site based around a large photo.
Photographic backgrounds can draw a visitor into a page. The large background can showcase what the site is about or what they are trying to sell. Navigational bars and content can then be displayed over the top of the photo. This technique is commonly used with photographer’s portfolio sites to showcase their work. However it can also work well in ecommerce, restaurants and travel sites, so long as the photo is professional quality.
Here are some examples of when this has worked well and how it can be applied.
