  • Parallax background—If enabled, the parallax effect will be applied to the background image.
  • Stretch image—The image will be stretched across the entire window width regardless of natural image size.
  • Mobile resolution—If the customer’s screen size is smaller than this value, adaptive styles will be applied, or the background image will be hidden (if the Hide on mobile devices option is enabled).
  • Hide on mobile devices—Select the checkbox if you want to hide the background image on mobile devices.
