Join Laura Franz for an in-depth discussion in this video Applying a no-repeat background image, part of Typography for Web Designers.
We have the image we'd like to use for our modernist bibliography.…Now we need to add the image to our page.…You need the files, biblio_sans_bgimage. html, and biblio_sans_bgimage.css from…the Exercise folder.…I have also provided an images folder with the image file in it.…Open up the HTML file in the browser to see what we're working with.…Everything is in place except for our image and based on our image we also need…to make a couple of changes to our colors.…
Let's put the image on our page.…In the CSS, we're going to add the image to the background of the page, so we'll…add it in the body tag.…Let's type in background-image: url (images/books_bg.gif) and…background-repeat: no-repeat, and background-position: 0em 10em, and…background-attachment: fixed.…
For right now we're going to leave our background-color.…This tells the browser you want to use a background image and the URL says…follow this path into the folder called images to find the image.…Background-repeat: no-repeat means only use the image once. Don't repeat it.…
