Background Image

A background image can be specified for almost any HTML element.


<div style="background-image: url('image_balloon.jpg');" >

Background Repeat

If the background image is smaller than the element, the image will repeat itself, horizontally and vertically, until it reaches the end of the element:

<div style="background-image: url('image_balloon.jpg');" >

background-repeat: no-repeat

To avoid the background image from repeating itself, set the background-repeat property to no-repeat.

<div style="background-image: url('image_balloon.jpg'); background-repeat: no-repeat;" >

background-attachment: fixed

To make sure the entire element is always covered, set the background-attachment property to fixed

<div style="background-image: url('image_balloon.jpg'); background-attachment: fixed;" >

background-size: cover

If you want the background image to cover the entire element, you can set the background-size property to cover.

<div style="background-image: url('image_balloon.jpg'); background-size: cover;" >

background-size: contain

If you want the background image to set in original size of the image, you can set the background-size property to contain.

<div style="background-image: url('image_balloon.jpg'); background-size: contain;" >

background stratch

If you want the background image to stretch to fit the entire element, you can set the background-size property to 100% 100%:

<div style="background-image: url('image_balloon.jpg'); background-size: 100% 100%;" >
