How to use it:

1. Include jQuery javascript library and the jQuery mouse parallax plugin at the end of the document to make the page load faster.

<script src=""></script>
<script src="mouse.parallax.js"></script>

2. Create a list of elements that you want to move within your parallax scene.

<div id="background" class="mouse-bg"></div>
<div id="foreground" class="mouse-bg"></div>
<div id="fore-foreground"  class="mouse-bg"></div>
<div id="fore-fore-foreground"  class="mouse-bg"></div>

3. Add background images to the elements in the CSS.

#background {
background-image: url('1.png');
#foreground {
background-image: url('2.png');
#fore-foreground {
background-image: url('3.png');
#fore-fore-foreground {
background-image: url('4.png');

4. The required CSS to make sure your background area is not hidden on page load

.mouse-bg {
left: 0;
right: 0;
bottom: 0;
top: 0;
position: fixed;
z-index: -1;

5. Initialize the plugin and set the moveFactor option as you prefer.

$(document).ready(function() {
$('#background').mouseParallax({ moveFactor: 5 });
$('#foreground').mouseParallax({ moveFactor: 10 });
$('#fore-foreground').mouseParallax({ moveFactor: 15 });
$('#fore-fore-foreground').mouseParallax({ moveFactor: 20 });
