25 Websites with Stunning Big Background Photos

High-quality photographs can have a huge impact on the look of a website. The photos can either help to enhance the design, or they can serve as a focal point. In some cases, the entire background (or a large percentage) of a website will consist of a large photo. In these situations the other design elements wind up complementing the photo, instead of the other way around.

In this post we’ll showcase 25 websites that make use of very large background photos. There are a variety of different types of websites included, and all different kinds of photos that are being used. Hopefully this variety will help to provide some inspiration for your own work by showing some of the possibilities.
