06. Multiple Backgrounds background

You can place multiple image locations separated by a comma. This is useful if you have a background in which parts of it are repeating elements.

A good example of this would be some background with a border that consists of repeating elements.

Since each repeated element is loaded only once, you can save your user bandwidth, resulting in a page that loads faster.

#background-image {
  background: /* Four corners of your background image */
  url('bg1.png') top left no-repeat,
  url('bg2.png') top right no-repeat,
  url('bg3.png') bottom left no-repeat,
  url('bg4.png') bottom right no-repeat,
  
  /* Four edges that repeat */
  url('bgLeft.png') left repeat-y,
  url('bgRight.png') right repeat-y,
  url('bgTop.png') top repeat-x,
  url('bgBottom.png') bottom repeat-x
}

Background shorthand notation

To specify background properties as a shorthand notation, we use the background property.

background: background-color, background-image, background-attachment, background-position

Note that these must be in order. If you don't want to use any of the properties, simply skip them.
