How the CSS object-fit property works

Object Fitting is the concept for images and video tags that we have a container, and we need to decide how to “fit” the object into the container. By default the object fit is “fill”, and this is how we probably expect images to be handled by the browser because before object-fit property was added to the CSS specifications, this is just how images always worked. What object-fit does is give you important options to avoid skewing, which include the object-fit: cover and object-fit: contain options.

In situations where you plan to have images contained in a certain dimension, but you don’t want them skewed, using either “cover” or “contain” will maintain the dimensions of the image (or video tag).
