Trying to set images as backgrounds for websites using CSS!

My question is how to import the images from my computer and I would additionally like to know how to import from the web. And lastly the correct code to do so. I'm already familiar with the <img src=> tags. I've tried to use imgur to upload images but it doesn't seem to be working.

Hi Vishnu, i understand that images can be imported in this way:

body, .btn, #idDiv { background-image:url('image.jpg'); }

in this case image.jpg makes reference to your project folder if you want to point to a website, you just have to remplaze it with the 'http://mywebsite.com/myimg.jpg'

I hope you can use it! best regards. León

Thx Leon!
