cant recognize an image in the img tag

So, for my unit one test i have to change the profile image and some other things. and when I go to change the photo of the background or profile image some of the photos wont display. I have it under the limit made the photos the same type of file(a .png or .jpg file). no matter what I do it will not display the photos I add to it. I can still display any photo added with the file in the first place.

Hi Gregory Seccomb

If you've double checked the file names and paths and neither of those are the issue, it's a bit difficult to further assist with troubleshooting without seeing the HTML / CSS files.
If you are using Treehouse's Workspaces, could you share a Snapshot of the workspace.
If you are using a local editor, you can copy/paste the lines using Markdown.

This will help us to better assist in the troubleshooting and hopefully be able to solve the issue.

:) :dizzy:

Are your images in a different folder? If so you have to add the folder to the image name like

<img src="images/pic.jpg" >

or is your html page in a subfolder? If so you have to move back to the root directory with ".." first

<img src="../images/pic.jpg" >
