Display this banner as parallax block: If enabled, your online store will use the image assigned to this banner in the "Banner images settings" section as a background that scrolls down slower than the page's main content. The picture for a parallax block should be big enough to fit the height and width of the page it's used at. If you do not set a parallax image, the banner will use the first one for the parallax effect. The parallax block will not display HTML banners.
Width, px: You can specify the width of the banner here. We recommend leaving this field empty for the image banners.
Height, px: You can specify the height of the banner here. We recommend leaving this field empty for the image banners and setting only the height for HTML banners.

Delay in seconds: Specify the preferred delay in seconds in this field.
Rotation effect: Choose one of the available rotation effects for the banner.
