CSS Background Image

The background-image property is used to specify a background image to be applied to all matched elements. By default, this image is tiled to cover the entire element, excluding margin.

A background-image has the following syntax

.myClass {
background-image: url('/path/to/image.jpg ');

To use multiple images as background-image, define comma separated url()

.myClass {
background-image: url('/path/to/image.jpg'),

The images will stack according to their order with the first declared image on top of the others and so on.

value result
url('/path/to/image.jpg') Specify background image's path(s) or an image resource specified with data URI schema (apostrophes can be omitted), separate multiples by comma
none No background image
initial Default value
inherit Inherit parent's value
