Hello, guys In this tutorial we will try to solve above mention query. and also we will learn how to move background image on scroll

First, we need to create three files index.html and style.css then we need to do code for it.


Add below code inside index.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>How to move background image on scroll</title>
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css">
  <script src=""></script> 
  <link href="" rel="stylesheet"> 
  <div class="section bg-static">
    <div class="move"></div>
  <div class="content">
    <h1>Move background image on scroll</h1>
    $(window).on("load resize scroll", function() {
    $(".bg-static").each(function() {
      var scrollTop = $(window).scrollTop();
      var elementTop = $(this).offset().top;
      var leftPos = scrollTop - elementTop;
        .css({ left: leftPos });

Then we need to add code for style.css which code I provide in the below screen.

* {
    padding: 0;
    margin: 0;
    font-family: 'IBM Plex Sans', sans-serif;
body {
    width: 100%;
    height: 200vh;
    overflow-x: hidden;
.bg-static {
    position: relative;
    max-width: 100%;
    min-height: 100vh;
    background-image: url("01.jpg");
    background-size: cover;
    background-position: center;
.move {
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    bottom: 0;
    right: auto;
    width: 100%;
    background-image: url("02.png");
    background-size: cover;
    background-position: center;
.content {
    display: flex;
    align-items: center;
    justify-content: center;
    height: 100vh;
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
