Syntax:

filter: none | blur() | brightness() | contrast() | drop-shadow() | grayscale() | hue-rotate() | invert() | opacity() | saturate() | sepia() | url();

Example:

HTML

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<head>
    <style>
        body {
            background-image: url(
            filter: brightness(90%);
            filter: grayscale(70%);
        }
    </style>
</head>
  
<body>
    <center>
