CSS gradients allow us to display smooth transitions between two or more colours. They can be added on top of the background image by simply combining the background-image URL and gradient properties.

Syntax:

element {
   background-image: linear-gradient(direction, 
    color-stop1, color-stop2, ...), url('url');
}
element {
   background-image: radial-gradient(direction, 
   color-stop1, color-stop2, ...), url('url');
}

Below are examples illustrating the above approach:

Example 1: Background image with the linear gradient.

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
 
<head>
    <title>Background Image with Linear Gradient</title>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport"
        content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
    <link rel="stylesheet"
        href=
    <style>
        .my_bg {
            background-image:
            linear-gradient(45deg,
              rgba(245,70,66, 0.75),
              rgba(8,83,156, 0.75)), url(
            width: 100%;
            height: 280px;
            text-align: center;
              color: #fff;
        }
    </style>
</head>
 
<body>
    <div class="my_bg">
        <h3>This is my background!</h3>
    </div>
</body>
 
</html>

Output:

    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport"
        content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
    <link rel="stylesheet"
        href=
    <style>
        .my_bg {
            background-image: radial-gradient(
              rgba(255, 49, 3, 0.896),
              rgba(251, 255, 0, 0.75)), url(
            width: 100%;
            height: 250px;
            text-align: center;
        }
    </style>
</head>
 
<body>
    <div class="my_bg">
        <h4>This is my background!</h4>
    </div>
</body>
 
</html>
