Here are examples with inline explanations for each of the specified CSS properties of Colors and Backgrounds: color:

The color property sets the text color of an element.

p {
  color: #3366cc;

In this example, the text color of all <p> elements will be set to a shade of blue (#3366cc).


The background-color property sets the background color of an element.

div {
  background-color: #f0f0f0;

This sets the background color of all <div> elements to a light gray (#f0f0f0).|


The background-image property sets one or more background images for an element.

body {
  background-image: url('background.jpg');

Here, the background image of the <body> element is set to 'background.jpg'.


The background-position property sets the starting position of a background image.

header {
  background-image: url('header-bg.jpg');
  background-position: center top;

This places the background image of the <header> element at the center horizontally and at the top vertically.


The background-repeat property sets whether a background image should be repeated, tiled, or not repeated.

section {
  background-image: url('pattern.png');
  background-repeat: repeat-x;

This repeats the background image of the <section> element horizontally but not vertically (repeat-x).


The border-color property sets the color of an element's border.

button {
  border-color: #ff6600;

This sets the border color of all <button> elements to an orange color (#ff6600).


The border-radius property sets the radius of the element's corners, creating rounded corners.

div {
  border-radius: 10px;

This gives all <div> elements rounded corners with a radius of 10 pixels.

Background Image Size CSS

Here's an example with separate HTML and CSS files, using the mentioned CSS properties:

Create an HTML file (index.html):

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en"><head>
<meta charset="UTF-8">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0"><link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css">
<title>CSS Example</title>
<div class="example-box">
<h1>Hello, CSS Example!</h1>
<p>This is a sample text with styled backgrounds and borders.</p>

Create a CSS file (styles.css):

/* Reset some default margin and padding */
body, h1, p {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;

/* Apply styles to the example box */
.example-box {
    width: 60%;
    margin: 50px auto;
    padding: 20px;
    background-color: #f5f5f5; /* Background color */
background-image: url('background-image.jpg'); /* Background image*/
background-position: center top; /* Background position */
background-repeat: no-repeat; /* Background repeat */
border: 2px solid #333; /* Border */
border-radius: 10px; /* Border radius */
color: #333; /* Text color */

/* Style heading and paragraph inside the example box */.example-box h1 {
    color: #007bff; /* Heading color */

.example-box p {
    font-size: 18px;
    line-height: 1.6;
    color: #555; /* Paragraph text color */

In this example:

  • The background-color property sets the background color of the .example-box div.

  • The background-image property sets the background image of the .example-box div. Make sure to replace 'background-image.jpg' with the actual path to your image file.

  • The background-position property sets the background image position to center top.

  • The background-repeat property ensures that the background image doesn't repeat.

  • The border-color property is part of the shorthand border property, setting the border color of the .example-box div.

  • The border-radius property rounds the corners of the .example-box div.

  • The color property sets the text color within the .example-box div.
