css responsive background image not showing

Tags: html,css,background-image

Problem :

I am having trouble getting my image to display when there are no fixed height and width assigned. I want my image to be flexy and responsive with my grid, so what I thought would work is to set height and width to 100% but no avail.

How can I get the image to show and be able to change size accordingly?


    <div class="row">
    <div class="large-12 columns">
        <div class="hero">
            <img id="image" src="steve1.png" alt=""/>


  .hero {
max-width: 100%;
height: auto;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
margin: 0;


Solution :

Give this a shot:

html {
    min-height: 100%;
    background-size: cover;
    background-image: url(steve1.png);
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    background-position: right bottom;
