Download the example above here. Then import it using these instructions.

2. Setup your Layers Grid Size and crop/resize your images.

Horizontal Pans

Images that pan horizontally should be sized/cropped (in Photoshop) to 2x the Layers Grid width, and 1x the Layers Grid height.

For the live demo above, the Layers Grid Size is 900×470.  In this example, images that are panning horizontally are 1800×470.

Vertical Pans

Images that pan vertically should be sized/cropped (in Photoshop) to 2x the Layers Grid height, and 1x the Layers Grid width.

For the live demo above, the Layers Grid Size is 900×470.  In this example, images that are panning vertically are 900×940.

  • Using Custom Grid Sizes
    If you plan on enabling Custom Grid Sizes, be sure to sizes of the same ratio. For example, if your original Layers Grid Size is 1000x500, Custom Grid Sizes should be set to the same aspect ratio (i.e. 500x250, etc.).

3. Adjust the image's background-position and Ken Burns settings.
