We’ve started a Full Sized Fixed Background Image web application project that dovetails a little with that recent PHP Image Dimensions Linux and Windows Glob Curl Tutorial, and so we added links to today’s PHP cover_fixed.php‘s live run to the “x” dropdown elements there.
There are a couple of aspects to this new project of immediate interest, in our view, those being …
- the basic CSS styling basis, we got inspired to use, via W3School’s Full Size Background Image …
background: url(img_man.jpg) no-repeat center fixed;
… onto which we added a “background image independently transparent” (thanks to advice of this great link when we presented Column Intelligence Primer Tutorial) piece of additional; functionality, involving CSS linear-gradients
- use the file object method to browse for local image files in addition to offering an image URL textbox method of changing that background image data
