A Closer Look at CSS

A Background Image

In CSS, the background-image property sets a background image of your choice for a given selector, as seen below.

.hero { background-image: url(""); }

The CSS rule above assigns the image hosted at

to elements that have a class attribute set to hero.

To control the size of the chosen background image, use the property background-size as seen below:

.hero { background-image: url(""); background-size: cover; }

Here, we have specified that we want the image to completely cover elements with the .hero class.
