Bootstrap Images

Images form backbone of the visual impact and aesthetics of a website. A picture is worth a thousand words. This idiom alone is sufficient enough to emphasize the importance of images in your website. Like other element, bootstrap images come with myriad of styling options. This article explains how bootstrap images are implemented in websites and how we can achieve different image affects via bootstrap image classes. Take a look at the following example.

You can round the corner of your images via “img-rounded” class inside the opening tag the “img” element. This adds small round corners around the image giving it a smooth look. Take a look at the following example.

<html>
    <head>
           
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.7/css/bootstrap.min.css">
 
      <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.0.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
      <script src="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.7/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>

    </head>

    <body>
     <img src="http://www.imagesource.com/Doc/IS0/Media/TR3_WATERMARKED/1/1/4/4/IS09A6IA1.jpg" class="img-rounded" alt="Girl Running" width="500" height="400">

<html>
    <head>
           
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.7/css/bootstrap.min.css">
 
      <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.0.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
      <script src="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.7/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>

    </head>

    <body>
     <img src="http://www.imagesource.com/Doc/IS0/Media/TR3_WATERMARKED/1/1/4/4/IS09A6IA1.jpg" class="img-responsive" alt="Girl Running" width="500" height="400">
