    min-height: 10em;
    display: table-cell;
    vertical-align: middle

Hi. Please try Flexbox. The Sample is bellow

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Title of the document</title>
      section { 
        display: flex; 
        width: 50%; 
        height: 200px; 
        margin: auto; 
        border-radius: 10px; 
        border: 3px dashed #1c87c9; 
      p { 
        margin: auto; /* Important */ 
        text-align: center; 
      <p> I'm centered with Flexbox!</p>

Actually, there are many ways to do that;
-Floater div
-CSS vertical-align Property
-Absolute Positioning and Negative Margin
-CSS Flexbox
-CSS Table Display
-Equal Top and Bottom Padding
-Absolute Positioning and Stretching
-Transform Property

A more versatile approach, which will align text vertically. It works for a single line and multiple lines of text, but requires a fixed height container:

center {
  line-height: 200px;
  height: 200px;
  border: 3px solid green;
  text-align: center;

/* If the text has multiple lines, add the following: */
.center p {
  line-height: 1.5;
  display: inline-block;
  vertical-align: middle;

You should set the line-height , which should be greater than the height of the image and then set vertical-align: middle on the image.

<div id="parent">
    <img src="image.png" alt="" />
#parent {
    line-height: 200px;
#parent img {
    vertical-align: middle;
