Different types of image shapes & Corners used in Bootstrap 4

  • Difficulty Level : Hard
  • Last Updated : 07 Oct, 2021

In this article, we will learn how to make different image shapes using Bootstrap & will also understand its implementation through the examples. Bootstrap offers different classes for images to make their appearance better and also to make them responsive. Making an image responsive means it should scale according to its parent element. That is, the size of the image should not overflow its parent element and will grow and shrink according to the change in the size of its parent without losing its aspect ratio. We will discuss the different classes available in Bootstrap for images.

In Bootstrap 4, the image is displayed using a <img> tag in different shapes and corners. These shapes and corners can be implemented using classes. The different shapes and corners that can be used for images in bootstrap are given below:

  • Rounded Corners
  • Circle
  • Thumbnail
  • Aligning Image

Here, we have used the Bootstrap 4 CDN link that can easily get from their official website.

Bootstrap CDN links:

Copy & paste the given stylesheet <link> inside the <head> tag before all other CSS files to load.



<link rel=”stylesheet” href=”https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.5.2/css/bootstrap.min.css”>

In order to use the Javascript functionality, we can use the below CDN link for javascript.

<script src=”https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.5.1/jquery.min.js”></script>
<script src=”https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/popper.js/1.16.0/umd/popper.min.js”></script>
<script src=”https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.5.2/js/bootstrap.min.js”></script> 

We will utilize the above CDN link to implement it to make different shapes of images.

Rounded Corners: In Rounded corners, the displayed image will be having its corners rounded. The .rounded class adds rounded corners to an image. This class is used with <img> tag.

Syntax:

<img src="image_source" class="rounded" alt="description">
