How to make image override parent width and stretch to browser width?

Tags: image,html5,css3

Problem :

I want to insert a specific image that will override and parent width it's contained in and stretch to the width of the browser. The image should be responsive as well. I can't figure out how to do this. Is this even possible? Thank you in advance for your help!

html code:

<div id="wrapper"> <img id="pic" src="" /> <p>This is a test</p> </div>

css code:

#wrapper { width: 300px; margin: 0 auto; } #pic { width: 100%; }

Solution :

You can't reliably achieve what you want without removing the img from the contained parent.

Your HTML would look like this:

<img id="pic" src="" />
<div id="wrapper">
   <p>This is a test</p>
