The CSS "contain" attribute does not work


I want to be able to display the entirety of an image within a div.

I'm having difficulty displaying an image with the background-size property set to contain - it does not display the whole image, only the centre, at the full size of the source image.



#header {
    background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.8);
    color: #ccc;
    text-align: center;
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    width: 100%;
    z-index: 3;
    padding: 20px 0;

#header .logo {
    width: calc(100%/3);
    height: 75px;
    margin: 0 auto;
    background-size: contain;
    background: url( no-repeat center center;
<div id="header">
  <div class="logo"></div>

This is because you overwrite the first property, you must move background-size property after background, like so:

#header .logo {
    background: url( no-repeat center center;
    background-size: contain;

This is because the shorthand background property will overwrite all preceding background-* properties whether they're included in the shorthand or not.
