State Background Images

Civil Services created high-resolution Landscape & Skyline Background Images for each US State and made them available in the following sizes:

Landscape Images

The Landscape image ( landscape_background_url ) are nice images of landscapes you can find in each state.

The default size is 1280x720. You will need to replace that string in the URL if you wish to use a different size.

Sample Image

oregon

Skyline Images

The Skyline image ( skyline_background_url ) are nice images of city skylines you can find in each state.

The default size is 1280x720. You will need to replace that string in the URL if you wish to use a different size.

Sample Image

New York

NOTE: All images were optimized for a balance in quality and file size.

State Flag Images

There are two sizes for each state_flag_url.

The default size listed in the data set is suffixed with -large.jpg. You will need to replace that string in the URL if you wish to use a different size.

CDN Image Usage

You can either copy the ./images/ folder into your project, or we also offer a CDN.

If you are using the image ./images/backgrounds/1280x720/landscape/alabama.jpg the CDN for that file would be https://cdn.civil.services/us-states/backgrounds/1280x720/landscape/alabama.jpg
