I want to use a GIF file as a background image on my web page but its not working when I style it in CSS.


 background-image: url("1554323659436.gif");
 background-repeat: no-repeat;
 background-size: 50% 50%;
 width: auto;

I have ensured the GIF name is accurate, but the image isn't appearing in the page's background. Can someone help out?

Hope this answer helps. From my experience, gif images or images in general fail to appear when folder structure is not defined properly. Please check a standard format for attaching gif or any image type in html background

body {
 background-image: url("[path_to_image]/1554323659436.gif"); /* The image used */
 background-color: #cccccc; /* Used if the image is unavailable */
 height: 500px; /* You must set a specified height */
 background-position: center; /* Center the image */
 background-repeat: no-repeat; /* Do not repeat the image */
 background-size: cover; /* Resize the background image to cover the entire container */

Please note, all of the other attributes can be optional except the first one. Good Luck!
