We are currently developing a single page responsive site in drupal 7.In our home page we tried implementing slideshow through view slideshow module (drupal 7). The slideshow is working perfectly fine. I want to know how to create a background slideshow using views slideshow?
This module provides a field formatter and Context integration for jQuery Backstretch - A simple jQuery plugin that allows you to add a dynamically-resized, slideshow-capable background image to any page or element.
The Photo module is great but still alpha stage. Details from its project page:
Photo is a photography and multimedia theme with a full screen slideshow. Showcase your important work, imagination with full screen photo slider. Photo is Drupal theme for photographic professionals, photo artist, amateur photographers to create photo gallery, portfolio with photos, video blogs. It is also useful for architecture, travel sites, hotels, restaurants, sculpture artist and for any purpose who want to emphasis on photos for the website.
Otherwise Write your own JS or add JS plugin to get this effect. With Jquery, anything is possible.
