CSS background-repeat Property

The CSS background-repeat property is used to make background images repeat in specific ways, or not to repeat at all. In the example below we will make the div element double the height of our background image and instruct the image to repeat vertically inside of it.

<style type="text/css">
#myID {
    background-image: url(myBG.jpg);
    background-repeat: repeat-y;
    border:#06C 1px solid;
    width: 500px;
    height: 500px;
<div id="myID">div content ...</div>
div content ...

Possible Values:

The background image will repeat both vertically and horizontally(also known as tiling). This is the default behavior of a background image if you do not specify the background repeat property.

The background image will NOT repeat in any direction.

The background image will repeat horizontally ( → ).

The background image will repeat vertically ( ↓ ).

Experimental Values:

Makes the background the image tile the space a 'whole number' amount of times. The image is rescaled to fill the space if it is not a perfect fit.

Makes background the image tile the space as often as will fit without clipping and equally spaces the tiles apart to fill the space.
