25 Examples of Websites with Transparent Backgrounds


As designers try to become more creative with their web sites there have been a few inspiring trends appearing in web design. The use of a large photographic background within a web site is a common design being used currently. Using a transparency effect allows for the photograph to be seen fully but all vital information needed can be placed over the top.

This creates a stunning visual effect which will give a sleek and stylish feel to your website. It can be used to either draw attention to an element on the page or to distract away from it. There are a number of uses for this effect and you can apply it in a variety of ways to suit your needs.
This effect can either be achieved by using transparent PNGs or using the CSS opacity property. It’s not a complicated technique to carry out and once it’s in place it will really give your website a lift. It’s mainly about trying to balance the right elements and find the perfect combination to suit your site.
Take a look at some of the websites below for inspiration on adding transparency to the design of your website.

    I do believe all the ideas you’ve introduced in your post. They’re
    very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too quick
    for novices. Could you please extend them a bit from
    subsequent time? Thank you for the post.
