Header background image

Hey guys,

On the "Image tags" section to the Intro to HTML and CSS course, Treasure explains how to change the picture in the profile picture, but I wanted to also give it a shot by inserting a placeholder into the background image of the header. I tried doing a search in the html file for "potfland" which is the current image, but couldn't find it.

TL;DR how do I change the background image of the header

Hi! The background image of the header can be changed through CSS.

header {
  background: url('images/portland.jpg') no-repeat top center ;

So there are 2 ways to add an image right?
