Accepted Answer

You mean this?

<style type="text/css">
.bgimg {
    background-image: url('../images/divbg.png');
}
</style>

...

<div class="bgimg">
    div with background
</div>

You can do that using CSS's background propieties. There are few ways to do it:


By ID

HTML: <div id="div-with-bg"></div>

CSS:

#div-with-bg
{
    background: color url('path') others;
}

By Class

HTML: <div class="div-with-bg"></div>

CSS:

.div-with-bg
{
    background: color url('path') others;
}

In HTML (which is evil)

HTML: <div style="background: color url('path')"></div>


Where:

  • color is color in hex or one from X11 Colors
  • path is path to the image
  • others like position, attachament

background CSS Property is a connection of all background-xxx propieties in that syntax:

background: background-color background-image background-repeat background-attachment background-position;

Yes:

<div style="background-image: url(../images/image.gif); height: 400px; width: 400px;">Text here</div>

Use this style to get a centered background image without repeat.

.bgImgCenter{
    background-image: url('imagePath');
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    background-position: center; 
    position: relative;
}

In HTML, set this style for your div:

<div class="bgImgCenter"></div>

Use like ..

<div style="background-image: url(../images/test-background.gif); height: 200px; width: 400px; border: 1px solid black;">Example of a DIV element with a background image:</div>
<div style="background-image: url(../images/test-background.gif); height: 200px; width: 400px; border: 1px solid black;"> </div>

You can simply add an img src Attribute with id:

<body>
<img id="backgroundimage" src="bgimage.jpg" border="0" alt="">
</body>

and in your CSS file (stretch background):

#backgroundimage
{
   height: auto;
   left: 0;
   margin: 0;
   min-height: 100%;
   min-width: 674px;
   padding: 0;
   position: fixed;
   top: 0;
   width: 100%;
   z-index: -1;
}
