HTML <picture> Tag

  • Last Updated : 20 May, 2021

The <picture> tag in HTML is used to give flexibility to the web-developers to specify image resources. The <picture> tag contains <source> and <img> tags. The attribute value is set to load more appropriate image. 
The <img> element is used for the last child element of the picture declaration block. The <img> element is used to provide backward compatibility for browsers that do not support the element, or if none of the source tags matched. 

The <picture> tag is similar to <video> and <audio>. We add different sources, and the first source that fits the preferences is the one that will be used.

<!DOCTYPE html>

            text-align: center;

        <source media="(min-width: 700px)" 
        <source media="(min-width: 450px)" 
        <img src=
             alt="GFG" style="width:auto;">
