What are Bootstrap Images?

Bootstrap Images are the content element that allows you to opt images into responsive behavior (so they never become larger than their parent elements) and add lightweight styles to themโ€”all via classes.


Installation

Manual installation (zip package)

To take advantage of our Bootstrap images component and use them in your project, you first need to install the MDB 5 Free package


MDB CLI

Watch our Quick Start Tutorial to discover and use the full potential of MDB 5 and MDB CLI


NPM

Prerequisites

Before starting the project make sure to install Node LTS (12.x.x recommended).

Installation

To install MDB UI KIT in your project easily type the following command in the terminal:

npm i mdb-ui-kit

Importing JS modules

You can import the entire library or just individual modules:

import * as mdb from 'mdb-ui-kit'; // lib
import { Input } from 'mdb-ui-kit'; // module

Importing CSS file

To import MDB stylesheet please use the following syntax:

@import '~mdb-ui-kit/css/mdb.min.css';

Importing SCSS modules

You can also import individual SCSS modules. To do it properly, we recommend to copy them from the node_modules/mdb-ui-kit/src/scss location directly to your project and import in the same way as CSS files.

Webpack integration

You can significantly speed up the process of creating a new project based on Webpack using our Starter.


CDN

Installation via CDN is one of the easiest methods of integrating MDB UI KIT with your project. Just copy the latest compiled JS script tag and CSS link tag from cdnjs to the application.

Don't forget to add also Font Awesome and Roboto font if you need. Here's an example code:

CSS
<!-- Font Awesome -->
<link
  href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/5.15.1/css/all.min.css"
  rel="stylesheet"
/>
<!-- Google Fonts -->
<link
  href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto:300,400,500,700&display=swap"
  rel="stylesheet"
/>
<!-- MDB -->
<link
  href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/mdb-ui-kit/3.3.0/mdb.min.css"
  rel="stylesheet"
/>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
JS
<!-- MDB -->
<script
  type="text/javascript"
  src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/mdb-ui-kit/3.3.0/mdb.min.js"
></script>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Customization

Responsive images

Images in MDB are made responsive with .img-fluid. This applies max-width: 100%; and height: auto; to the image so that it scales with the parent element.

<img src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/new/slides/041.jpg" class="img-fluid" alt="..." />

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
Thumbnails

In addition to our border-radius utilities, you can use .img-thumbnail to give an image a rounded 1px border appearance.

<img
  src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/new/standard/city/041.jpg"
  class="img-thumbnail"
  alt="..."
/>

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
Masks

You can cover the image with mask to achieve the desired contrast and for example, place text on it.

<div class="bg-image">
  <img
    src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/new/standard/city/053.jpg"
    class="img-fluid"
    alt="Sample"
  />
  <div class="mask" style="background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.6)">
    <div class="d-flex justify-content-center align-items-center h-100">
      <p class="text-white mb-0">Can you see me?</p>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
