Problem With Background Images

by David.G » Fri Jul 22, 2011 11:20 pm

I was reading the HTML tutorial of CSSS and I came across this code:

<body style="background-image: url('http://www.html.net/logo.png');">

This is very good for taking an image off a website but what if I want to add an image from a folder. What command would be used then?

Thanks in advance for the help:)

As long as your image is saved in the same location as your html file the following example should work fine:
<body background="name of image.jpg">

or .png/gif etc.

Hey Hello,
there is a simple solution for you, you can call image in your designing page or you can take path which is in your desktop for your image.it will work 100%.
