Background image path not working in css file using gulp js

I am working on a project where I am concatenating all files, minifying and renaming by gulp.

When I write an image path as a background image in my main css file it is not working in the minified file. Actually I am unable to set the image path as it is getting compiled in my minified file which is in another directory.

My File route flow

assets -->

dist -->


I have put an image file inside the assets/img folder and am calling that file inside my main.css


return gulp.src([
.pipe(cleanCSS({compatibility: 'ie8'}))
browsers: ['last 2 versions'],
cascade: false

and in my

background:url('../img/black-multiply-bg.png') 0 0 repeat;

I am seeing this console error for image file not found

http://localhost/projects/P-09-sakha/html/dist/css/assets/img/black-multiply-bg.png 404 (Not Found)

The source is showing the dist folder. I have also checked with gulp-css-url-adjuster but still am unable to make it work.


I have solved the issue of css-url-adjuster today while working for another project.

What I found the format of the coding was not correct for me before. So I am sharing in hope someone may find helpful from this.

For this I have used 4 Gulp plugins. 1. gulp-clean-css 2. gulp-cssmin 3. gulp-rename 4. gulp-css-url-adjuster

and the code is:

gulp.task('css', function(){
return gulp.src([

 * Note
 * To Use minify and fixing the image path, you have
 * to use both gulp-clean-css & gulp-cssmin & gulp-css-url-adjuster
 * and the format must follow the below code
 * else you will get error

.pipe(cleanCSS({compatibility: 'ie8'}))
       prepend: '../img/',
