Large photo backgrounds are a great way to set the mood for your website, and especially when using templates or tools like Website Builders World, it’s a way to add a personal touch to your site’s design.

Large photo backgrounds used to be challenging due to bandwidth and loading times, but these days, connections have sped up to the point where media-rich sites still load in a timely fashion. Now, the challenge is finding a photo that works well with the design of the site and that communicates without the need for more info in order to draw the connection between your site’s purpose and the background photo.

In this post, you’ll find 30 large photo background-based sites that demonstrate how to use photographs as backgrounds in an effective way.
