Set a background-image for the element:

body {
    background-image: url("paper.gif");
    background-color: #cccccc;

Definition and Usage

The background-image property sets one or more background images for an element.

The background of an element is the total size of the element, including padding and border (but not the margin).

By default, a background-image is placed at the top-left corner of an element, and repeated both vertically and horizontally.

Tip: Always set a background-color to be used if the image is unavailable.

Default value:  none
Inherited:  no
Animatable: no. Read about animatable
Version:    CSS1 + new values in CSS3
JavaScript syntax:"url(smiley.gif)

CSS Syntax

background-image: url|none|initial|inherit;

Property Values
Value   Description
url('URL')  : The URL to the image. To specify more than one image, separate the URLs with a comma
none    : No background image will be displayed. This is default
initial : Sets this property to its default value. Read about initial
inherit  : Inherits this property from its parent element. Read about inherit


Set multiple background images for the element:

body {
    background-image: url("img_tree.gif"), url("img_flwr.gif");
    background-color: #cccccc;
