Sometimes background image is necessary. In order to set a background image we will use setStyleSheet() method.

Syntax : label.setStyleSheet(“background-image : url(image.png)”;)

Argument : It takes string as argument.

Action performed Add background image to a label.

Code :

# importing the required libraries
from PyQt5.QtCore import * 
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
import sys
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        # set the title
        # setting  the geometry of window
        self.setGeometry(60, 60, 600, 400)
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_1 = QLabel(self)
        # moving position
        self.label_1.move(100, 100)
        # setting up the border
        self.label_1.setStyleSheet("border :3px solid blue;")
        # setting label text
        self.label_1.setText("no background image")
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_2 = QLabel(self)
        # moving position
        self.label_2.move(160, 170)
        # setting up the border and adding image to background
        self.label_2.setStyleSheet("background-image : url(image.png);
                                              border : 2px solid blue")
        # setting label text
        self.label_2.setText("with background image")
