As a follow up to the release of object-fit support, Webflow should add support for object-position as well. Some intel on what this enables, thanks to TG2's forum post:
Object-position is needed for these tasks:
- Set image focal points on-the-fly, avoiding cropped versions flooding the poor Asset Manager
- Change position across breakpoints (i.e., landscape on desktops vs portrait on mobile—sometimes, only certain parts of the image work well)
- End the 5+ year tyranny of background images
I’m thankful for the effort so far. At the same time,
object-fit will have much wider usage (i.e., supplant performance-regressive background images) after
object-position has been integrated.
