Adding Images

Background: Shorthand

In the last few exercises, you learned how to set a background image, its repetition pattern, and its position using three different properties. CSS allows you to set all three properties at once using a shorthand property: background.

Previously, we set these three properties as follows:

p { background-image: url("#"); background-repeat: no-repeat; background-position: right center; }

The code in the example above can be shortened using the background property.

p { background: url("#") no-repeat right center; }

Note that the background property includes all of the properties that we previously styled individually: background image, repetition, and position (in that order). It's considered best practice to follow this order of values when setting the background property.
