Need help positioning background images behind elements


#1

@Waldo, my orange shapes are image files that I placed on top of my hero image. That image is supposed to be a fullwidth hero image and then the orange shapes have to go on top of the image and the text has to be inside those orange shapes. I just dont understand why it looks fine in designer mode but then in the desktop view tab, it looks completely different.

Hi @gschultz

I took a look at your project and i noticed that there were a few things that needed fixing.
This video should help:

Since Webflow is not as simillar to Photoshop as a lot of people might think it is, here are a few courses that will help you a lot with understanding Webflow more:

Hello @DharmaNode thank you for your response. I noticed you had mentioned theres a few things that need fixing, would you be able to let me know what those "things" are?

Ofcourse,

1 Loose images on the page had to be replaced by the hero section's background image
2 The orange bars you used as images wouldn't work that way because the image is always going to adjust differently to the screen than text.
3 The text was positioned with margins and relative px which should be positioned by only using relative % (helps with responsiveness)

Everything i mentioned above will be seen in the video.

Hope i cleared some things up :slightly_smiling:

Awesome, thank you @DharmaNode, do you mind if I send you a message if I have anymore questions relating to your video or the issues I have at hand?


#6

Any more questions about this specific problem can be placed here, helps other people with the same problems out too!


#7

So, @DharmaNode is there another way of creating those orange shapes in Webflow? Rather than having to resort to an image file of it?


#8

@DharmaNode I am having a lot of trouble following along to your video. You arent explaining anything in it and your doing things way to fast to even follow along with what your doing.


#9

Im stuck on the part between 1:42 and 1:50 of your video. You go way to fast to be able to tell what your doing, therefore I am not really learning much from it.
