How do you center align an image vertically in CSS?

To improve the design of a web page positioning and aligning images on an HTML page is crucial to its appearance.
One of the most common questions is how to align an image to the center of a container or box.
In this article we will discuss many possible ways to place images in the center.

We can add CSS image center Style as:
Inline - by using the style attribute in HTML elements
Internal - by using a <style> element in the <head> section
External - by using an external CSS Style file as style.css

 

Inline CSS and HTML Syntax:

<img style = "property:value" src = "image_link" />

 

Internal CSS and HTML Syntax:

<html>
<style>
.selector_name { property: value; }
</style>
<body>
<img class = "selector_name" src = "image_link" />
</body>
<html>

 

by using an external CSS Style file as style.css where we add CSS Style .selector_name { property: value; }

External CSS and HTML Syntax:

<html>
<head>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" type="text/css" />
</head>
<body>
<img class = "selector_name" src = "image_link" />
</body>
<html>
Note: use external CSS instead.

CSS center image in a div vertically and horizontally

Many web developers are looking for ways to improve their web pages. Managing image responsiveness and alignment is sometimes quite difficult, especially centering an image in the middle of the page.
So in this post, I'm going to show you some of the most common ways to center an image both vertically and horizontally, using different CSS properties.

Inline CSS - by using the style attribute in HTML elements
Internal CSS - by using a <style> element in the <head> section

For a better understanding we present an example:

Example (this is HTML - PHP editor, change text, values on this window)

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title> centering an image</title>
<style>
.horizontal_center {
text-align: center;
border: medium solid #060;
}
.vertical_center {
display: table-cell;
height: 400px;
vertical-align: middle;
border: medium solid #F00;
}
img{
height: 250px;
width: 220px;
}
.vertical_horizontal {
display: table-cell;
height: 400px;
text-align: center;
vertical-align: middle;
border: medium solid #06F;
width: 300px;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>

<h2>horizontal alignment of the image </h2>
<div class="horizontal_center">
<img src="https://www.agernic.com/templates/mariwel.jpg"/>
</div>
<hr>
<h2>vertical alignment of the image </h2>
<div class="vertical_center">
<img src="https://www.agernic.com/templates/mariwel.jpg" />
</div>
<hr>
<h2>vertical and horizontal alignment of the image </h2>
<div class="vertical_horizontal">
<img src="https://www.agernic.com/templates/mariwel.jpg" />
</div>
</body>
</html>

CSS image center in container

To center an image using property text-align: center; you have to place <img> inside a block-level element, such as a div, box or container.

Because the text-align property only applies to block-level items, place text-align: center on the wrapping block-level element to achieve a horizontally centered <img>

Example (this is HTML - PHP editor, change text on this window)

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title>CSS image resize - example</title>
<style>

div {
width: 200px;
text-align: center;
padding: 10px;
border: 2px solid red;

}
img {
max-width: 100%;
height: auto;
}

</style>
</head>
<body>

<h2>CSS image resize</h2>
<div>
<img
src="https://www.agernic.com/templates/mariwel.jpg"
alt="news templates" />
</div>
</body>
</html>

Note: The parent element must be a block element. If it is not a block element, you should add display: block;

 

Object Fit

Once your image is centered you may need a resize and this is done with the help of object-fit. The CSS object-fit property is used to specify how an <img> or <video> should be resized to fit its container.. - css image crop object-fit

This property can be used for a picture, video, or any other media element and it can be used with object-position property to get more control on how the media is displayed.

Example (this is HTML - PHP editor, change text on this window)

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title>Using object-fit: cover</title>
<style>
.img_setup {
width: 160px;
height: 250px;

}
.img_object {
width: 160px;
height: 250px;
object-fit: cover;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>

<h2>Picture </h2>
<img class="img_setup" src="https://www.agernic.com/templates/mariwel.jpg" width="400" height="300"/>
<hr>

<h3>Using object-fit: cover</h3>
<img class="img_object" src="https://www.agernic.com/templates/mariwel.jpg" width="400" height="300"/>
</body>
</html>

 

CSS image background-position no repeat

How to position a background-image:
By default, a background-image is placed on the top-left corner of an container or box, and repeated by vertically and horizontally.
Here, the wallpaper on this web page will be positioned in the center of the container (in this case, the item is body).

Example (this is HTML - PHP editor, change text on this window)
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title>Using object-fit: cover</title>
<style>
body {
background-image: url('https://www.agernic.com/templates/mariwel.jpg');
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-attachment: fixed;
background-position: center;
}</style>
</head>
<body>
<h2>Background-position Property no repeat </h2>
<p>Here, the wallpaper on this web page will be positioned <br />
in the center of the container (in this case, the item is body).</p>
</body>
</html>
