vertically - html center image on page




Center image horizontally within a div (12)

Center a image in a div

/* standar */
div, .flexbox-div {
  position: relative;
  width: 100%;
  height: 100px;
  margin: 10px;
  background-color: grey;  
}

img {
  border: 3px solid red;
  width: 75px;
  height: 75px;
}
/* || standar */


/* transform */
.transform {
  position: absolute;
  top: 50%;
  left: 50%;
  transform: translate(-50%, -50%);
  -ms-transform: translate(-50%, -50%); /* IE 9 */
  -webkit-transform: translate(-50%, -50%); /* Chrome, Safari, Opera */ 
}
/* || transform */


/* flexbox margin */
.flexbox-div {
  display: -webkit-flex;
  display: flex;
  background-color: lightgrey; 
}

.margin-img {
  margin: auto;
}
/* || flexbox margin */


/* flexbox justify align */
.flexbox-justify {
  justify-content: center;
}

.align-item {
  align-self: center;
}
/* || flexbox justify align */
<h4>Using transform </h4>  
<div>
  <img class="transform" src="http://placeholders.org/250/000/fff" alt="Not By Design" border="1" />
</div>

<h4>Using flexbox margin</h4>  
<div class="flexbox-div">
  <img class="margin-img" src="http://placeholders.org/250/000/fff" alt="Not By Design" border="1" />
</div>

<h4>Using flexbox justify align</h4>  
<div class="flexbox-div flexbox-justify">
  <img class="align-item" src="http://placeholders.org/250/000/fff" alt="Not By Design" border="1" />
</div>

This is probably a stupid question but since the usual ways of center aligning an image are not working I thought I would ask. How can I center align (horizontally) an image inside its container div?

Here's the HTML and CSS. I've also included the CSS for the other elements of the thumbnail. It runs in descending order so the highest element is the container of everything and the lowest is inside everything.

#thumbnailwrapper {
      color: #2A2A2A;
      margin-right: 5px;
      border-radius: 0.2em;
      margin-bottom: 5px;
      background-color: #E9F7FE;
      padding: 5px;
      border: thin solid #DADADA;
      font-size: 15px
}
    
#artiststhumbnail {
      width: 120px;
      height: 108px;
      overflow: hidden;
      border: thin solid #DADADA;
      background-color: white;
}
    
#artiststhumbnail:hover {
      left: 50px
}
<!--link here-->

<a href="NotByDesign">
  <div id="thumbnailwrapper">

    <a href="NotByDesign">

      <!--name here-->
      <b>Not By Design</b>
      <br>

      <div id="artiststhumbnail">

        <a href="NotByDesign">

          <!--image here-->
          <img src="../files/noprofile.jpg" height="100%" alt="Not By Design" border="1" />
        </a>
      </div>

      <div id="genre">Punk</div>

  </div>

Okay, I have added the markup without the PHP in so should be easier to see. Neither solution seems to work in practice. The text at top and bottom cannot be centered and the image should be centered within its container div. The container has overflow hidden so I want to see the center of the image as that's normally where the focus is.



CSS flexbox can do it with justify-content: center on the image parent element.

HTML

<div class="image-container">
  <img src="http://placehold.it/100x100" />
</div>

CSS

.image-container {
  display: flex;
  justify-content: center;
}

Output:

body {
  background: lightgray;
}
.image-container {
  width: 200px;
  display: flex;
  justify-content: center;
  margin: 10px;
  padding: 10px;
  /* Material design properties */
  background: #fff;
  box-shadow: 0 2px 2px 0 rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.14), 0 3px 1px -2px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2), 0 1px 5px 0 rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.12);
}
.image-2 {
  width: 500px;
}
.image-3 {
  width: 300px;
}
<div class="image-container">
  <img src="http://placehold.it/100x100" />
</div>

<div class="image-container image-2">
  <img src="http://placehold.it/100x100/333" />
</div>

<div class="image-container image-3">
  <img src="http://placehold.it/100x100/666" />
</div>

I am going to go out on a limb and say that the following is what you are after.

Note, the following I believe was accidentally omitted in the question (see comment):

<div id="thumbnailwrapper"> <!-- <<< This opening element -->
    <div id="artiststhumbnail">
...

So what you need is:

#artiststhumbnail {
    width:120px;
    height:108px;
    margin: 0 auto; /* <<< This line here. */
    ...
}

If you have to do this inline (such as when using an input box),
here is a quick hack that worked for me: surround your (image link in this case)
in a div with style="text-align:center"

<div style="text-align:center">

<a title="Example Image: Google Logo" href="https://www.google.com/" 
target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img src="https://www.google.com/images/branding/googlelogo/2x/googlelogo_color_272x92dp.png" alt="Google Logo. Click to visit Google.com" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a>

<h6><strong>This text will also be centered </strong></h6>

</div> /* ends centering style */

Put a equal pixel padding for left and right:

<div id="artiststhumbnail" style="padding-left:ypx;padding-right:ypx">

The best thing I have found (that seems to work in all browsers) for centering an image, or any element, horizontally is to create a CSS class and include the following parameters:

CSS

.center {
    position: relative;          /* where the next element will be automatically positioned */
    display: inline-block;       /* causes element width to shrink to fit content */
    left: 50%;                   /* moves left side of image/element to center of parent element */
    transform: translate(-50%);  /* centers image/element on "left: 50%" position */
}

You can then apply the CSS class you created to your tag as follows:

HTML

<img class="center" src="image.jpg" />

You can also inline the CSS in your element(s) by doing the following:

<img style="position: relative; display: inline-block; left: 50%; transform: translate(-50%);" src ="image.jpg" />

...but I wouldn't recommend writing CSS inline because then you have to make multiple changes in all your tags using your centering CSS code if you ever want to change the style.


This also would do it

#imagewrapper {
    text-align:center
}

#imagewrapper img {
    display:inline-block;
    margin:0 5px
}

Use positioning. The following worked for me... (Horizontally and Vertically Centered)

With zoom to the center of the image (image fills the div):

div{
    display:block;
    overflow:hidden;
    width: 70px; 
    height: 70px;  
    position: relative;
}
div img{
    min-width: 70px; 
    min-height: 70px;
    max-width: 250%; 
    max-height: 250%;    
    top: -50%;
    left: -50%;
    bottom: -50%;
    right: -50%;
    position: absolute;
}

Without zoom to the center of the image (image does not fill the div):

   div{
        display:block;
        overflow:hidden;
        width: 100px; 
        height: 100px;  
        position: relative;
    }
    div img{
        width: 70px; 
        height: 70px; 
        top: 50%;
        left: 50%;
        bottom: 50%;
        right: 50%;
        position: absolute;
    }

to center an image horizontally this works

<p style="text-align:center"><img src=""></p>

##Both Vertically and Horizontally center of the Page
.box{
    width: 300px;
    height: 300px;
    background-color: #232532;
    position: fixed;
    top: 0;
    bottom: 0;
    left: 0;
    right: 0;
    margin: auto;
}
