Check your folder structure. It's possible that you aren't referencing it correctly (e.g. ../img/filename.jpg vs. /img/filename.jpg).

Hope this helps some.

You should post your code or double check for your mistake. I can't help you with such a limited question. Its like me asking a mechanic how I fix my car without him seeing it.

post your code as this will help us determine the issue, though as a reference...

remember to check if you are entering your code according to the structure of your folders


../img/example.jpg vs. /img/example.jpg

ALSO...remember to make sure all letters are EXACTLY as described in the image.


../img/Example.jpg vs. ../img/example.jpg

as the capital "E" will break your link if it is lowercase in the image name
