One of the greatest trends in web design is the use of big background images and photographs in design. While bandwidth and speed limitations used to affect the number and size of images used on sites, these days, it’s possible to quickly load big background images, making the design possibilities almost unlimited.

Using big background image for websites has become so popular, the ability to use them is a feature in most popular web builders and themes. It’s not as simple as just putting up a big photograph with text on it, so I’ve gathered some examples that get it right.
