All About Large Website Backgrounds

  • With the changing trends, we have witnessed a dramatic change in the way backgrounds were selected for a website. Traditionally, it was simply colors or themes that was used on a website which was later replaced by big backgrounds. Large backgrounds as tested gives a high and classy visual impact to the websites. A creative web designer can perhaps play with the art created by the photographers, for instance a picturesque landscape or a wonderful catchy portrait. Huge backgrounds can also be large illustrations and in some cases a video.
  • Although, there are varying styles that are used by the web designers; however the most common ones are photographs, illustrations or graphics and animation as backgrounds. It is the animated style that is just used for experimentation, but with Internet becoming faster and bandwidth cheaper, many websites can afford to use these. Without doubt, the most common thing that web designers face with big backgrounds is that they have to be conformed to the screen resolution. 
  • It is imperative for a web designer to test the website using different screen resolutions in order to refrain from the fallouts. And an ideal way is to check the website on window widths of different browsers. No matter, how safely you play, but there are few mistakes that tends to evolve when using large backgrounds. Below mentioned are some of the mistakes that a web designer must hold back from doing: 
  1. Centered, Scaled or Tiled Images: It is not a bad idea to place images in center, title or scaled manner as a background. It is also recommended to maintain the symmetry of the website. Overusing these techniques will certainly end up in the development of a poorly looking website.  Centered: Make use of the images that blends perfectly with the background so that users having high screen resolutions should not notice it. 
  2. Title: If you are willing to title the image, keep in mind that the image edges are consistent with a particular pattern, thus developing a website with a seamless background. 
  3. Scaled: The most significant factor that must be kept in mind while scaling an image for a website is the quality of image and target resolution. A creative web designer should use varying formats that are usually optimized for image style. 
B. Impact on Bandwidth and Performance: The larger background equals big files that can create an       impact   on bandwidth and thus user experience. Bandwidth is generally the data that is transferred from one place to other, particularly from server to a client. With the use of large graphics, the loading time website takes increases to a great extent. This calls for a need of image optimization using proper image format or resolution along with other resources such as JavaScript or CSS.
  • Conclusion: High resolution websites should not all that you should consider when designing a website. Small screen resolutions must be given equal weight age due to the fact that a high resolution website will not be compatible to the mobile phones. With a growing demand of Mobile browsing, a website with high resolution will turn out to be a fiasco. Maneet Puri is the managing partner of a partnership venture group, MNM LIT.
