Flash Player Required
When the content of the website scrolls the background image remains fixed.
Best results are achieved when using a landscape image of the proportion
3 to 2 (e.g. 1200px wide, 800px high).
BackDrop JS works identically in all modern browsers with Flash installed. In IE6 (or in browsers without Flash) BackDrop JS gracefully degrades to setting the image as a repeating background, filling the browser.
BackDrop JS is Free to use for any commercial or non-commercial use without restriction.* Please report any bugs, fixes, or successful implementations via my contact page.
Download BackDrop JS Version 2.1:
Downloaded zip folder contains:
backdrop.swf (Flash Movie)
backdrop.fla (Flash Source)
index.html (Demo Page)
myimage.jpg (Demo Image)
Implementation just got a whole lot easier in BackDrop JS 2.1.
Now just place this snippet of code immediately after the <body> tag:
Set 'myimage.jpeg' as the path to your background image, and that's it!
