Im moving a background image based on x mouse position with :

  var strength1 = 100;
  var pageX = e.pageX - ($(window).width() / 2);
  $('#foreground1').css("background-position", (strength2 / $(window).width() * pageX * -1));

Open in new window

this works fine with images on left. How can i adjust this for an image sat on the right of the screen?

Shouldn't you invert the formula ...(strength2 / $(window).width() * pageX * -1) with ...(1-strength2 / $(window).width() * pageX)?
