30 Beautiful Large Photo Background Website Designs

Large photos are becoming increasingly popular in web design, particularly acting as a background for a website.  They can help quickly establish mood, a color palette, and communicate the meaning and purpose of a website.  However, because they tend to attract attention, it’s important to have a great photo to use as the background, which often requires some tricky photomanipulation.  Additionally, because it’s relatively harder to resize photos based on a user’s browser size, some advanced CSS or, in some cases, Flash, is required to get everything to look good.

So, here are some beautiful large photo backgrounds in website design, to get you inspired and confident to try using this technique on one of your own sites.
