Images not optimising to different screen size

Hi everybody,

I’m a new webflow user. I’m trying really hard to optimise my background Hero image and slider image. Depending on the screen size, it’s either stretched horizontally or vertically. Where am I going wrong and how can I correct it?

Please help!

Thank you.

Hi Rohan,

Try using the cover function in the background menu panel of the section. Then you can use the sliders to adjust position.


Hello @ChieraCreative ,

Although it looks perfect on my computer, as always (screenshot 1).

It doesn’t look right on my colleague’s computer (screenshot 2).

This is the problem I’m facing - Image optimisation for different screen sizes.

@RohanGanachari For this I would recommend playing with the aspect ratio - Try fixing the image to the bottom of the section and increasing to 80vh

No cutoff on my end with a 24" screen

One trick you can try is zooming out on your browser to replicate a larger screen


I did exactly as you showed me.

Here’s a zoomed out screenshot. Perfect on my computer.

Here’s the same image on my friend’s computer.

I don’t want it at 80VH because I need the part of the next section showing up.

@RohanGanachari I do see that it’s no longer stretching on you. Unfortunately, that’s going to be more related to the aspect ratio of the screen and the actual image being used.

@ChieraCreative The original image dimensions are 1190 x 700 px. I re-sized the image by increasing height to 2380 x 1400 px and 3570 x 2100 px. But I’m experiencing the same issue.

Any ideas on what else I can do?

@RohanGanachari On a wider screen, the field of view will be narrower therefore cropping more of the image. The only options would be to increase the height of the div, use a container with margins which would cause the image to not span the screen or use a picture that is zoomed out a bit more.
