How to make images overlap each other by css
I have images, whose got very less content and have a lot of background, which is not required. Since the images has a lot of background, there are taking a lot of space. The structure of the document is image1, image2. Image1 is taking a lot of space (backgound), I want the image 2 to occupy the background space of image 1. This is the normal situation http://ctrlv.in/561984 This is intended http://ctrlv.in/561968

I would recommend using position relative and absolute values to achieve your desired results. Here's a good article on learning position with css in 10 steps http://www.barelyfitz.com/screencast/html-training/css/positioning/
You can add margin between the elements , or position the element you want to move relative to its parent element. The achieved with the position property.

Hi Vamsi - you should be able to achieve this with the margin property on image 2 but making the margin negative in numbers - however negative margins are not best practice.

You could also try setting to to a relative position and using the
bottom keyword so the second image will push from the top.
