The v-img component is packed with features to support rich media. Combined with the vuetify-loader, you can add dynamic progressive images to provide a better user experience.


v-img component is used to display a responsive image with lazy-load and placeholder.


v-imgPrimary Component





If the provided aspect ratio doesn’t match that of the actual image, the default behavior is to fill as much space as possible without cropping. To fill the entire available space use the cover prop.


v-img will automatically grow to the size of its src, preserving the correct aspect ratio. You can limit this with the height and max-height props.



v-img has a special placeholder slot for placeholder to display while image’s loading. Note: the example below has bad src which won’t load for you to see placeholder.


v-img has an error slot that can be used to display alternative content if an error occurs while loading your source image. A common use for this slot is to load a fallback image if your original image is not available.


Future image formats

By default v-img will render a basic <img> element. If you want to use .webp images with a fallback for older browsers, you can pass a list of <source> elements to the sources slot:

<v-img src="image.jpeg">
  <template #sources>
    <source srcset="image.webp">

This will behave similarly to:

  <source srcset="image.webp">
  <img src="image.jpeg">

srcset and media attributes can also be used for art direction or alternate sizes, see MDNfor more.


You can use v-img to make, for example, a picture gallery.
