Hi,

These are general epub css questions. Not specific to Sigil. Please ask in the "epub" forum not the Sigil forum.

You need to put the picture into your ebook. In Sigil that would mean clicking on the "Add Existing" (plus sign on toolbar or File/Add in the menu) and selecting your file.

Once the image is in your epub, then you need to reference the image using this format:
background-image: url("../Images/example.jpg");

where ../Images/example.jpg is the full internal path to the image file you added.

You can (and should) spend some time looking through some of the CSS/HTML tutorials found on our Wiki or at W3Schools
