  • Dear ePix team,

    I have an issue with the parallax images. When i set a parallax image like your screencast/documentation, the image scales to a huge size as if its zoomed.
    This does not correspond with the original image size.
    How can i make it scale down to the original size?
    You can view the issue in pretty much most of the sections of my website where a parallax image is used.
    I have tried multiple images with multiple sizes to no avail.
    Please help!

    Hi,

    I’ve taken a look at the Parallax image on this page and it doesn’t appear scaled to me? You can only see a part of the image because that’s the way that parallax works.

    Understood, but shouldn’t the picture width match the row width?
    The way the picture is rendered now looks like its scaled for the full wrapper length and not the parallax-content.
    For instance at http://christophoros.photography/info/the-style/ the picture size is 1200×300 but it stretches too much, way more than the 1050px of the parallax-content box; hence its enlarged
    Thanks for your help

    Hi Chris,

    Unfortunately it’s done off the width of the browser. It’s only possible that way to achieve the “fixed” effect as you scroll.

    Hi Andy, thanks again for your reply.

    How did you achieve it in your demo page here? http://epix.themeva.com/features-shortcodes/

    Im talking about the swimming girl picture. Its correctly scaled and respects the 1050px container rule.

    Hi Chris,

    it’s the same on that page too. Take a look at that page and load the image that’s being used in another browser tab and you’ll see how it’s positioned:
