React Bootstrap is one version of Bootstrap made for React.

It’s a set of React components that have Bootstrap styles.

In this article, we’ll look at how to add images, figures, and jumbotrons to a React app with React Bootstrap.


React Bootstrap has the Image component to let us add an image of various shapes.

We can have images that are rounded, a circle, or a thumbnail.

For example, we can write:

to add an image with a rounded corner with the rounded prop.

Likewise, we can add the roundedCircle prop to make the image display in a circle:

We can also add the thumbnail prop to display them as thumbnails:

Fluid Images

We can use the fluid prop to scale images to the parent element’s width.

For instance, we can write:

to make the image scale to the parent’s width.


We can display a piece of content with the Figure component.

One good thing to display with it are images with a caption.

For instance, we can write:

We have the Figure component, which is a wrapper for the Figure.Image to display an image.

And we have the Figure.Caption component to display the caption below the image.


A jumbotron is a lightweight and flexible component that can extend the whole viewport to show key content on our app.

For instance, we can write:

to show a jumbotron with a title and some body text.

At the bottom, we have a button.

We can make it scale with the parent with the fluid prop.

We write:

to make it fluid.


React Bootstrap comes with the Image component to display images.

It also has the Figure and Jumbotron to let us display content in different ways.
