Parallax Scrolling Made Easy: The Parallax Background Builder

Parallax scrolling is all the rage right now, and you don’t have to look to hard to find incredible examples of it. You might be chomping at the bit to use it in your own web creations, but I admit parallax can be a bit of a technical challenge to pull off. If this is your situation, you will love this new web design tool: the Parallax Background Builder.

This awesome little tool lets you point and click your way to creating a beautiful parallax effect. I don’t much care for the stock images the site provides, but they’re more than sufficient to test out the service.

If you’ve got an idea for parallax scrolling on your own site, create separate images that you’d like to include and load them into this tool. Once you’ve built your effect, you simply copy and paste a code into your site. If you can embed a YouTube video, you can embed your parallax effect.

I’d love to see a version of this parallax builder that includes all of the needed resources (such as the JavaScript file) for local storage, but this hosted version will do for now. The tool is especially great if you just want to prototype the effect.
