Bootstrap carousel width and height

Im trying to do a bootstrap carousel with full width for the images (width: 100%) and a fixed height but if I set the width to 100% the height automacally is taking the 100% too

I don’t sure if the problem is in my files

 <div id="myCarousel" class="carousel slide">
<ol class="carousel-indicators">
  <li data-target="#myCarousel" data-slide-to="0" class="active"></li>
  <li data-target="#myCarousel" data-slide-to="1"></li>
  <li data-target="#myCarousel" data-slide-to="2"></li>
<!-- Carousel items -->
<div class="carousel-inner">
  <div class="active item">
    <%= image_tag "slider/slide-bg-1.jpg", class: "tales" %>
  <div class="item">
    <%= image_tag "slider/slide-bg-2.jpg", class: "tales" %>
  <div class="item"> 
    <%= image_tag "slider/slide-bg-3.jpg", class: "tales" %>
<!-- Carousel nav -->
<a class="carousel-control left" href="#myCarousel" data-slide="prev">&lsaquo;</a>
<a class="carousel-control right" href="#myCarousel" data-slide="next">&rsaquo;</a>

and my css file

.tales {
  width: 100%;
  height: 200px;


Are you trying to make it responsive? If you are then I would just recommend the following:

.tales {
  width: 100%;
  max-height: 200px !important;

However, the best way to handle this responsively would be thru the use of media queries like such:

/* Smaller than standard 960 (devices and browsers) */
@media only screen and (max-width: 959px) {}

/* Tablet Portrait size to standard 960 (devices and browsers) */
@media only screen and (min-width: 768px) and (max-width: 959px) {}

/* All Mobile Sizes (devices and browser) */
@media only screen and (max-width: 767px) {}

/* Mobile Landscape Size to Tablet Portrait (devices and browsers) */
@media only screen and (min-width: 480px) and (max-width: 767px) {}

/* Mobile Portrait Size to Mobile Landscape Size (devices and browsers) */
@media only screen and (max-width: 479px) {}
