CSS object-fit


img {
  width: 150px;
  height: 100px;
  border: 1px solid #000;

.fill {
  object-fit: fill;

.contain {
  object-fit: contain;

.cover {
  object-fit: cover;

.none {
  object-fit: none;

.scale-down {
  object-fit: scale-down;

The object-fit CSS property specifies how the contents of a replaced element should be fitted to the box established by its used height and width.
