Image Parallax

Description

Upload the layers of your image, and create a parallax effect !

It works great on smart devices too !

The first step is to create with your favorite picture editing software (Photoshop, GIMP…) an independent image for each ground composing your image. All these layers shall be the same size, and should be in .png format as they are meant to include transparency areas.
Then, on your post editing page in WordPress, click the Insert Media button, and (the same way you would create a gallery) upload your layers under the Create Parallax item. Reorganise the layers if needed, from the background to the front.
You can finally configure the animation (calibrate, invert, limit, scalar, friction), and publish !

There is some examples on the plugin page.

It uses parallax.js by Matthew Wagerfield.

Screenshots

  • Upload your layers, organise them, and configure the animation.
  • First of all, generate independent .png files of each layer of your image. This is the boring step.

  3. Create a .png file for each layer
  4. Create an effect, upload your layers, and publish !

Reviews

Excellent implementation of Parallax.js

Bonjour!
Just came across Image Parallax. Excellently done monsieur. Have attempted to get Wagerfield’s script in WordPress but failed miserably.
Have you managed to make it work with backgrounds?
Merci beaucoup
