What is parallax scrolling?

Parallax scrolling is a popular web design feature that makes some elements of a web page scroll at a slower speed than others, giving a 3D effect. When included subtly, this adds a modern and professional look to your website.

The recommended resolution for the hero image is 2000 pixels wide, and about 1200 pixels tall. The top and bottom of the image will be cropped to fit the image into the banner.
