Elementor Trick #4: Parallax Image Scroll
Parallax image scroll is one of the most praised trends in web design nowadays. Just take a look at the examples below and you’ll understand why:
As you can see, this technique enables background images to move and create an illusion of depth in a 2D or 3D scene of distance.
And yes – you can leverage this effect in Elementor! There are two ways and here’re the steps:
- On a Web Element
- On the background
Let’s first start with adding the parallax effect to a web element. To do so, edit the chosen element in the Advanced tab. In the Motion Effect dropdown, set the Scrolling effect to “On”. Now, decide which animation you like the most – here’s what you can choose from:
Finally, tweak the animation according to your needs (by clicking on the “pencil”). You can apply multiple effects for each element, but we advise you not to overdo it 😀.
Here’s how the effect looks implemented on a text (My Services):
When it comes to parallax effect on the website background, start by clicking on one of the website’s sections and hit the Style tab. Find the Background section and select Motion Effect or Mouse Effect (try both and decide which one fits your needs).
The next steps are the same as explained for adding the effect on a web element.
