The tag accepts the attributes in the following table (as well as the HTML 5 global attributes and HTML 5 event handler content attributes).
|Attribute||Description||alt||Alternate text. This specifies text to be used in case the browser/user agent can't render the image.||src||Location of the image.||crossorigin||This attribute is a CORS settings attribute. CORS stands for Cross-Origin Resource Sharing. The purpose of the crossorigin attribute is to allow you to configure the CORS requests for the element's fetched data. The values for the crossorigin attribute are enumerated.
If this attribute is not specified, CORS is not used at all.
An invalid keyword and an empty string will be handled as the anonymous value.
|ismap||For image maps. See the element.||usemap||width||Specifies the width of the image.||height||Specifies the height of the image.|
Background Image Code
You can also add a picture to the background, so that text and other elements appear in front of the image. You can do many things with background images, such as make it tile/repeat, change its position, change its size, and more.
Background images are defined differently to foreground images (as in the above example). Background images are defined using the CSS background-image property and can be applied to any HTML element.
Here's a basic example of a background image.

You can also use the background shorthand property to set the background image and other background properties.
