I am a big fan of the background photographs in web design. You can build entire layouts focused on simple themes related to photography. I can especially relate to freelancers and design agencies who utilize this trend for catching people’s attention very quickly.
Therefore I have put together this wonderful collection of big website layouts with oversized photos. Each background image is often scaled to 100% of the page width – the perfect CSS tools for a responsive web design. But you will also notice the page content flows very nicely according to each background image. Check out these techniques and see if you can apply a similar design style into any of your web projects.
