The art of crafting pixel-perfect website layouts can take many years to develop as a professional. One such area to focus on is the photograph-based backgrounds you see throughout many portfolio and company websites. Full-page photos often work well in a wallpaper-type display ported onto the web.

There are many styles and variations of this technique, as it has been adapted through the years. But I have collected 23 of my favorite websites boasting fullscreen backgrounds for this gallery. The trends are still growing and have managed to hold onto their concepts for some time.
