'Border-radius' not affecting profile photo?

When I alter the percentage of the border radius, my profile photo remains a square as opposed to the circular example shown in the tutorial when the radius is changed to 20%

Be sure you're selecting the correct img element in your css file. Try just adding this to the bottom of your css:

img { border-radius: 100%; }

That should make every image become a circle. That'll let you know that it's working in your browser and from there I'd make sure that the class I selected was correct and matched the class in the html file. Good luck.

You might also need to add browsers' prefixes. For the older ones.

Be sure no other rules rewrite this one.

Hi, Daniel Bromilow:

The problem with your is the fact it should be border-radius: 50%, not `border-radius: 100%; on the safe side you should add browser vender prefixes which may also be your problem if your browser if a bit old. If you decide to use browser-prefixes, make sure it is after the browser-prefixed version:

.profile-pic { 
  width: 88px;
  height: 88px;
  -webkit-border-radius: 50%;
 -moz- border-radius: 50%;
  border-radius: 50%;
}

Regarding Browser Prefixes

You can benefit from using autoprefixer or prefix-free to not worry about browser prefixes. You can also use Compass if you're using Sass using +border-radius(50%) (Sass, the most efficient way to use Sass) or `@include border-radius(50%)

.profile-pic { 
   @include border-radius(50%);

   width: 88px;
  height: 88px;
}
