    i used an background image for the first section of my “Home”-Page. It looks perfect on desktop and laptop.
    You can see it here:

    But it looks terrible on mobile devices no matter what setting i use. I guess it is a problem of the image size, but i don’t know the exact pixels to make it look good.

    Could you please have a look at it and help me to get it on all devices in a good shape? Credentials in private section.

    Best regards,


    Hey Niico93,
    I looks as though you have the background set to contain, which forces the image to show it’s full width and distort to match the height of the section. Setting to cover would match the height but not show the full width.
    Might I suggest that for mobile devices you replace the image with a solid color, because with all of the elements you have on the page, at mobile I couldn’t make out what the image was, it just looked brown to me.
    Although at desktop there is enough room around the elements to see the image.
    Otherwise my suggestion would be to set the background to cover and center the image on the barrel for mobile. We can help with this if you wish.

    Best regards,


    Hey, thanks for your reply.

    So if you set the background to cover and center the image on the barrel for mobile it wouldn’t influence like it shows up on desktop right now?

    Then i would appreciate your help to get it like that



    Can you try adding this css code in Quick CSS (located in Enfold > General Styling):

    @media only screen and (max-width:479px) {
      #top.home #av_section_1 .av-parallax {
        transform: none !important;
      #top.home #av_section_1 .av-parallax-inner {
        height: 100vh;
        background-size: cover !important;

    Changing the image for mobile using a portrait oriented image should make it look better. Hope it helps :)

    Best regards,


    perfect! thanks!



    Glad that we could help! Thanks for using Enfold and have a great day :)

    Best regards,
