CSS background-image

Demo

The CSS background-image property is used to specify a background image of an element.

Syntax

background-image: <value>

Possible Values

  • <uri>
  • none

In addition, all CSS properties also accept the following CSS-wide keyword values as the sole component of their property value:

initial
Represents the value specified as the property's initial value.
inherit
Represents the computed value of the property on the element's parent.
unset
This value acts as either inherit or initial, depending on whether the property is inherited or not. In other words, it sets all properties to their parent value if they are inheritable or to their initial value if not inheritable.
