How to set a Background Image in React

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to set a background-image in the react app using inline styles and external css.

This tutorial assumes that you already created a new react project using create-react-app.

Setting image using inline styles

Example:

import React from 'react';
import car from './images/car.png'
function App() {
  return (
    <div  styles={{ backgroundImage:`url(${car})` }}>      <h1>This is red car</h1>
    </div>
  );
}

export default App;

In the above example first, we imported car image from the images folder then we added it to the div element using backgroundImage css property.

Setting image using external css

If you don’t like adding background images using inline styles we can also add using external css styles.

Example:

App.js
import React from 'react';
import './App.css';
function App() {
  return (
    <div  className="container">      <h1>This is red car</h1>
    </div>
  );
}

export default App;
App.css
.container{
  background-image: url(./images/car.png);
}
