Creative Websites with Panoramic Backgrounds

Creative Websites with Panoramic Backgrounds

Many web developers pay a lot of attention to their website’s background. There is nothing strange in it because the background often determines the impression that a website makes on visitors. It is rather clear that, for example, cute colorful toothy monsters will suit children websites greatly, but they will look freaky on business-related web pages. However the field of business activity of websites’ owners is not the only determinative element in choosing the design (and the background as one of the most important parts of it).

If you have ever looked for a website template then you might have noticed that themes with attractive photos and background images attract your attention faster. All designers and web developers know this little secret and successfully apply it in a website creation. What do you think, which kind of images is more impressive and eye-catchy? Certainly, it is panoramic photos which display amazing nature and urban landscapes.

Commonly, horizontally scrolling panoramic backgrounds are widely spread on the web, but there are also vertically-oriented panoramas and websites with an ability to explore them in a fly-through mode.

So, knowing these tricks, web developers can create real masterpieces using different sorts of scripts and animated elements. It will engage visitors into the browsing process itself. However, there is a risk that users which are carried away with traveling through the website will forget about the initial aim of their visit. But experienced developers know how to entertain the audience and at the same time how to draw their attention to the right things.

Today we’d like to draw your attention to creative and impressive websites with panoramic backgrounds. We divided the showcase into two categories – HTML and Flash websites with panoramic backgrounds, so that you can make sure yourself that there are differences between these panoramas. So, here we go!

HTML Websites with Panoramic Backgrounds

Tools of HTML in creating websites with panoramic backgrounds are a little bit poorer than Flash ones. More often web developers upload panoramic photos on the background of the whole website or separate pages. It helps to create the proper mood. And single-page websites are also good for creating panoramic images. Here you’ll find both types of websites which perfectly display panoramic views and present content in the suitable way.

    So many beautiful examples, hard to pick my favorite one :)
    Thanks for the nice collection of these websites.

    They have nice art-design but most of them are web-games or entrance for web-games, the really nice ones is a presentation websites for web-designer companies or photoshop arts.

    There are much less personal blogs or serious (news, companies) websites.

    Thanks for the share though, got to meet some nice websites :)
