A very dramatic responsive design idea is to use an image as the background behind a section.
If you add a parallax effect, as the user scrolls down the page the background image and the content over it will scroll at different speeds. This creates a sense of depth.
This lesson outlines the steps to add an image background to a Section on the Flow page and set it to a slow parallax effect.
Tips for controlling the display and design of Sections with Dividers
A walk-through on how to add a Custom Character Set and a Custom Background to the Scenario Builder widget.

Steps to add a Label to an image.

The text in the labels is also included in Translation export files, making it easy to translate the text (much easier than editing the image in another application to ch...
Steps to add a Hotspot to an image.
You can add hotspots as a layer over an image. If you move the image the hotspot will remain in the same location in relation to the image.
Once you have added a hotspot you can use it as a trigger for a wide range of Actions such as showing or hiding content.
In a Flow page, the height of a Section is set by the height of the content it contains by default.
You can override that default height, though, and tell the Section to behave as if its height is a ratio based on the height of the browser window it’s being viewed within. Along with that height setting, you can set the content within the Section to align within the Section’s height. It’s a great design idea for creating a dramatic full-height Section on your page.
In this lesson we’ll set ...
