<title>How to specify a fixed background-image</title><!-- Set the title of the HTML document -->
<style type="text/css"> /* CSS style start*/
body {
background-image: url("https://www.w3resource.com/images/w3resource-logo.png"); /* Set the background image of the body */

  • This HTML document sets a fixed background image for the body element using CSS.
  • The background-image property specifies the URL of the background image.
  • background-repeat: no-repeat ensures that the background image is not repeated.
