CSS Question

Responsive css background images

I have a website ( and I want to make the background (in css I have defined a bg-image for the content) also responsive. Unfortunately I really don't have any idea on how to do this except for one thing that I can think of but it's quite a workaround. Creating multiple images and then using css screen size to change the images but I wanna know if there is a more practical way in order to achieve this.

Basically what I wanna achieve is that the image (with the watermark 'G') automatically resizes without displaying less of the image. If it's possible of course


Code I have so far (content part)

background-image: url('../images/bg.png');
background-repeat: no-repeat;
position: relative;
width: 85%;
height: 610px;
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;

If you want the same image to scale based on the size of the browser window:


Do not set width, height, or margins.
