Coded Triangles with Background-Image

Basically I am trying to code my own website as it is a portfolio... Problem is my design skills are far better than my development tools (fail).

I am looking a way to code a Triangle (css?) and assign a background image to it?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

This StackOverflow post discusses how to create a CSS triangle with a background image. Let me know if you get something out of it. There is also a CodePen here.

Hi Glenn,

This post on CSS Tricks may be helpful. It turns some <div> elements into triangles. You could then use background-image to add an image. Depending on the image, you may have to use background-position to achieve what you want.
