[SOLVED] CSS/ cut an img's width when reducing the screen/window width

I wanted to have an Image on 100% width, with a max-height. When scaling the window and you're reaching the max-height, the width should still be at a 100% but "cropping" the image bigger (provided image size is fitting). This means you can see more of the image sides (left and right) when its on a big scale window, and you can see less on a small sized window. I'll post my css try down, but i don'thave a clue how to do that at this point. Hope you're getting my issue, i'll attach a visualisation.

My Code, don't get confused, I wanted to do a slider but lets focus on only one picture now, so sliders out of the game for now:

.slider-inner img {
  max-width: 100%;
  height: auto;

#main-slider {
  width: 80%;
  min-width: 500px;
  height: 450px;
  min-height: 400px;
  overflow: hidden;
  margin: 0 auto;

  width: 100%;
  height: 450px;
  margin: 0 auto;
  overflow: hidden;
  padding: 0px;


What i want (visualisation):

If I understood you correctly you want your image to maintain its height and crop the width when window size is smaller.

Check this example:

  height: 300px;
  position: relative;
  overflow: hidden;

div img{
  position: absolute;
  left: 50%;
  top: 50%;
  transform: translate(-50%, -50%);
<img src="">

You do this with background image:

.box {
  background:url( center top/auto 100% no-repeat;
<div class="box">

Also you had "max-width:100%" and "height: auto" before. 100% is a relative unit, saying to take up 100% of the parent container's width, and auto was telling it to scale with the width while keeping aspect ratio.
