  3. We have also added anchor links. Create as many circles as elements in your page with the elipse tool. Place them on the left of your website and pin it, so it will always be visible when you scroll. Place the anchor links near the elements and link them to the circles, so whenever you click on them it will take you to the desired point.horozontal-parallax-scroll-effect4
