Background Images. Help solve the problem!

task: We have an image file, 'smiley.png', located in the 'img' folder. Add it as an image above the texture background. Set it so that it doesn't repeat, and position it in the top-right corner of the div. Then, add 'img/pencil.png' above the smiley image layer. Set it so that it doesn't repeat, and position it in the bottom-left corner.

.sketch { background: url('img/smiley.png')no-repeat right top, url('img/pencil.png')no-repeat bottom left, url('img/texture.jpg') #EED293; }

Hey Polischuk,

Try this. The pencil image should be first =)

What ever image is top, should be called first, then move onto the next under, the challenge is asking for:

  • Pencil
  • Smiley
  • Texture
.sketch {
     background: url('img/pencil.png') no-repeat left bottom, url('img/smiley.png') no-repeat right top, url('img/texture.jpg') #EED293;

Thank you for your help! :)

I just spent a lot of time on this one, but my resolution was different than this.

I'm betting that you have your images in a separate folder from your css, meaning that the img and css folders are on the same level. The way you coded here your img folder would be a subfolder of css, so you need to jump up one folder before trying to access your img folder.

To do this try adding ../ in front of your img folder .sketch { background: url('../img/smiley.png')no-repeat right top, url(../'img/pencil.png')no-repeat bottom left, url('../img/texture.jpg') #EED293; }

Zdarova Volodymir, what is the issue you are having right now? It looks correctly except i would not put #EED293 and just delete it...
