Joomla 3.x. How to make background (parallax) image responsive

Usually, background images are zoomed in and not responsive, i.e. they aren’t autoresized for smaller screens.

  1. Use Inspect Element tool (F12) in browser to find what line in CSS stands for background image positioning: open the Inspect Element toolbar and hover over background to find out what line and file stands for background styling.

  2. Add the background-size property to the line which stands for the background style, it will define size of the background image. To make image responsive, set its size to 100%.

    There are 2 variants of size parameters for responsiveness:

    background-size: 100% 100%;


    background-size: 100% auto;

    Values stand for image width and height accordingly. If you set height to 100%, the BG image will be displayed in full height but it may look squeezed. It’s recommended to set image height to auto to prevent image from looking distorted on different devices:
