Add Images to Your Website

Problem Explanation

Img HTML elements belongs to the group of the “self-closing” HTML elements: it means that they do not follow the ordinary structure - open tag, put content, close tag - but they have just one tag which works as opening and closing tag:
As all opening tag it still can receive attributes though, and these are the tools you can use to manipulate the tag, put some content in, enhance accessibility, etc.
The main attributes of an img tag are src and alt:
Put here a brief description of the image

Attributes are key value pairs inserted into the tag. The syntax is <tag key1="value1" key2="value2"> </tag> or, in case of self-closing tags, <tag key1="value1" key2="value2" /> - notice that the pairs are separated by a space character, not by a comma.

<img src="insert URL of the image" alt="Cute dog smiling">

Can anyone tell me why my code isn’t working? I’ve been stuck here for hours.Cat laying on its back

This is the code, which I noticed only works if I delete the space between the alt line and the end of the img line but it still isn’t working. Cat laying on its back

Never mind, figured it out, lol. It wants the image on line 25, scroll all the way down.


Ladies and gents, any body figured this out yet? I am stuck here for hours now;

Thanks in advance for your guidance

Make sure you are outside of the style section. I was stuck on this for awhile until I discovered that the images don’t process inside of style.


I figured this out guys. I’m super stoked. Power through it guys.
