A length indicating the position of the top side of the image relative to the box's top padding edge. Percentages are calculated against the vertical dimension of the box padding area. A value of 0% means the top edge of the image is aligned with the box's top padding edge and a value of 100% means the bottom edge of the image is aligned with the box's bottom padding edge.
