The HTML <picture> element is a container used to specify multiple {{HTMLElement("source")}} elements for a specific {{HTMLElement("img")}} contained in it. The browser will choose the most suitable source according to the current layout of the page (the constraints of the box the image will appear in) and the device it will be displayed on (e.g. a normal or hiDPI device.)

Content categories Flow content, phrasing content, embedded content
Permitted content Zero or more {{HTMLElement("source")}} elements, followed by one {{HTMLElement("img")}} element, optionally intermixed with script-supporting elements.
Tag omission {{no_tag_omission}}
Permitted parents Any element that allows embedded content.
Permitted ARIA roles None
DOM interface {{domxref("HTMLPictureElement")}}


This element includes only global attributes.

Exemplo 1: Uso com atributo media 

The media attribute lets you specify a media query that the user agent will evaluate to select a {{HTMLElement("source")}} element. If the media query evaluates to false, the {{HTMLElement("source")}} element is skipped.

 <source srcset="mdn-logo-wide.png" media="(min-width: 600px)">
 <img src="mdn-logo-narrow.png" alt="MDN">

Exemplo 2: Uso com atributo type

The type attribute lets you specify a MIME type for the resource(s) given in the {{HTMLElement("source")}} element's srcset attribute. If the user agent does not support the given type, the {{HTMLElement("source")}} element is skipped.

 <source srcset="mdn-logo.svg" type="image/svg+xml">
 <img src="mdn-logo.png" alt="MDN">
