Background Images


  • Background-Images helps in adding images as backgrounds to an element. One or more images can exclusively be added to the background of an element giving the mirage that they are all part of 1 single image.

Applying Background Images to HTML Elements

Till CSS2 you could only have background of HTML elements as various colors. Like you provide green or blue color to the background of any element. But, what if you would like to add some gradient or image as background of that element? Was it possible? I would say, yes, you could do that, but with some hassle. You could provide backgrounds to some elements like buttons but not same with divs or paragraphs.

Now, in CSS3 you can simple add one property named background-image with a set of values and Yoooooo! The div or paragraph will have image as its background. This is quite useful for making user-friendly and super-interactive Web pages.


  background-image: url('tree.png'), url('greenField.png');
  background-size:auto, cover;
  background-repeat:no-repeat, no-repeat;
  background-position: 250px 20px, 0px 0px;
