HTML Tutorial 6

Images in HTML

Images are found in nearly all Web-Pages. Images are used to Gave data output in the form of Media so user can Understand your content easily. Images also be used to add more attractive Design to your Web-page bu using Great Background etc.
So in this Tutorial we are going to Learn about HTML Images.

Image Tag <img>:

<img> or HTML Element Defines Images inside HTML Documents.
To add Images links to a web-page we have to use HTML's <img> Tag for that.By using <img> tag we can insert one or Images to out HTML Web-page.

src Attribute :

HTML src attribute Defines the path/URL for our Image Tag.
for adding path to our Image Tag we have to write src attribute inside image's Starting tag <img> and inside the Double quotas of src we have to gave our image's URL with image Extension. src="url".

HTML Image Syntax :

       <title>HTML Image</title>
       <img src="image.png"/>

Image Path :

There is two types of path to link Images:
and External

Local Image Path :

There is not always the case when you have to insert Image that's only available on the Internet, there are many cases when you just have to insert a image from your Local Machine (Computer) or a file that available on the same Location/Folder/Directory.
in local web-page cases we can insert Image without giving the full path. Just the file name and followed by the file Extension (.jpg/.png/.jif)

HTML Local Image Example :

  <img src="myimage.jpeg"/> 

External Image Path :

If your image file is on the Different directory then your have to Give full Path of that image. Because by default Browser will search that image on the same path where your web-page is. For adding external image or image from different folder/Directory you have to give full Path of that file with name and followed by the file Extension (.jpg/.png/.jif)

HTML External Image Example :

  <img src="c:/Desktop/HTML/myimage.jpeg"/>

HTML Image alt Attribute :

Image alt Attribute is used as a Alternative text for your image. Like i am going to add a Image of statue of liberty. So when ever i or any use Hover his mouse over the image then the ALT attributes text will aper. Use will knows many things LIKE Image detail, who is in that image or when due to some cases Browser couldn't Load our image the this ALT attribute will gave Image name/data in the form of text.

HTML Image Size Attributes

  <img src="cat.png" alt="my cat, chittu"/>

Resizing Images in HTML

Every time we insert Images in HTML Document it will tag up space according to the image size. If image is 100X150 the it will take the 100px in width and 150px in height in our browser screen, and rest of the page will remain Empty.
But we can resize images so our Image can take up the full screen space or according to our Needs.
for that we have 2 ways.

1. HTML image resize attribute.
2. CSS size properties.

1. HTML image resize attribute :

HTML give us two HTML image resize attributes width="" and height="" attributes. so inside the double quotes we have to give our custom image size in Pixels (100px).

HTML Image Size Attributes

  <img src="myimage.png" width="400px" height="430px"/>

2. CSS Resize properties :

Same as HTML Image size Attributes we have Height and with properties in CSS. we have to target our Image in CSS using TagName or By giving id or class name to our Image Tag. After Targeting image we just have to gave Height and Width values in Pixels like this :

     width: 200px;
     height: 160px;

if you are using ID or Class name in CSS please don't forget to add # before id name and . period before class name.

HTML Image Style :

HTML Image Border Style :

By default HTML Image has no Border. But we can add Little Border with color to Our image.
just target your Image by tag (img) name or by id (#idname). and inside the Curly braces add css border Property and gave a Color and size to your Image.

Image Border Style Example :

 border: 3px solid red;


HTML Image Float Position Style :

for Changing default image Floating point (which is left) use CSS float property.

Image Float Example :

 float: right;


HTML Image Display Style :

CSS display property can hide or show your Image inside HTML Document. to hide your Image you have to set CSS display property to none, if you want to show your picture back again the just set CSS display property to Block.

Image Display Style Example :

 display: none;

Image Hover Style:

for adding a nice Hover Effect on Image. we have to use CSS :hover attribute right after the tag name/id. This will only runs the CSS Properties on Mouse Hover.

Image Hover Effect:



Move your Cursor/Mouse over The Image

Background Image :

To add a background image on an HTML element, we have HTML body background attribute and we also can add background image to any HTML Elemnt by using CSS property background-image:

Background body attribute

This Background attribute can add background image to HTML Document. we just have to write background attribute inside the body's starting tag background="url"

<body background="bgimage.jpg">

CSS Background image property :

for adding background image using CSS Background image property we have to target our HTML Body tag first in CSS. then inside the we have to write the CSS Background image property background-image: and after that we have to gave our image's URL inside url's braces/brackets url(image url)

Background Image CSS

<title>HTML Images</title>
<style type="text/css">
       background-image: url('cat1.jpg');
	Background Image Example

HTML Image Opacity Style:

Using CSS Opacity property we can change the Default Opacity Value (which is 1). so our image output can be Customized like little Blurry/transparent. We have to Set Opacity between 0 to 1. So 0 is the Lowest and 1 is the Highest Opacity Value.

Background Image CSS

<title>HTML Images Opacity</title>
<style type="text/css">
      opacity: 4;
    <img src="dog2.png"/>

HTML Picture Element :

HTML Picture element is another Useful Element for adding multiple images but displaying one at a time. Look this way. i want to display 3 images in 3 different ways.
image 1: i want to display image 1 on smaller mobile screens.
image 2 : i want to display image 2 on little large Tablets screens.
Image 3 : i want to display Image 3 on Bigger PC/Laptop's Screens.
in that case with the help of Picture Element i can display Images according to the Device Width by Declaring images ones.

for that we have to write Picture Element <frame> and inside frame's starting and closing tags we have to source Element. inside the Source's starting tag we have to write media attributes who allow Picture Element to react according to given width. so give 2 different width in min-width: and last the 3ed element will be Image tag without any min-width: properties, Because this last image will be your Default image when other 2 source element doesn't fill the Device requirements.

Picture Element Example :

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
<title>HTML Pictute Element</title>
	  <source media="(min-width: 650px)" srcset="img_3.jpg">
	  <source media="(min-width: 465px)" srcset="img_2.jpg">
	  <img src="img_1.jpg" alt="Flowers" style="width:auto;">
