A React project is created using create-react-app command and the task is to set a background image using react inline styles. There are three approaches that are discussed below:

Approach 1: Set background image using external URL: If the image located somewhere online, then the background image of the element can be set like this:

Filename: App.js

Javascript




import React from "react";
  
const App = () => {
  return (
    <div style={{
      backgroundImage: 'url("https://media.geeksforgeeks.org/'+
      'wp-content/uploads/20201221222410/download3.png")',
      height: "300px", backgroundRepeat: "no-repeat"
    }}>
      <h1> HELLO </h1>
    </div>
  );
};
  
export default App;

Approach 2: Set background image using the Absolute URL method: If you put your image, for example, background.jpg file inside the public/ folder, you can include the absolute URL by using the PUBLIC_URL environment variable.



Filename: App.js

Javascript




import React from "react";
  
const App = () => {
  return (
    <div style={{
      backgroundImage: `url(${process.env.PUBLIC_URL
          + "/background.jpg"})`,
      height: "300px", backgroundRepeat: "no-repeat"
    }} >
      <h1>Hello</h1>
    </div>
  );
};
  
export default App;

Approach 3: Set background image using the Relative URL method: If you put your image, for example, background.jpg file inside the public/ folder in the react app, you can access it at <your host address>/background.jpg. 

You can then assign the URL relative to your host address to set the background image like this:

Filename: App.js

Javascript




import React from "react";
  
const App = () => {
  return (
    <div style={{
      backgroundImage: "url(/background.jpg)",
      height: "300px",
      backgroundRepeat: "no-repeat"
    }} >
      <h1>Hello</h1>
    </div>
  );
};
  
export default App;

Step to Run Application: Run the application using the following command from the root directory of the project:

npm start

Output: 

react-js-img
