Centering two images with html and css

How can I center two images. Here is my html: <!-- Body Images--> <div class="wrapper">

                <img src="1sthome.jpg" alt="Headshot 1" id="homeimg">
                <img src="2ndhome.jpg" alt="Headshot 2" id="homeimg2">


    </div>

Here is the CSS:

homeimg {

width: 25%;
height:35%;
float: left;
padding: 10px;
text-align:center;
}

homeimg2 {

width:25%;
height: 37%;
float: left;
padding: 10px;
text-align: center;
}

:point_right: This might be a good place to use flexbox.

Remove the float properties from the images and add this rule for the wrapper:

.wrapper {
  display: flex;
  justify-content: center;
}

I believe you can also accomplish this by adding text-align center to the wrapper div containing the two images.

.wrapper { text-align: center; }

You would still have to remove the "float" properties from the images.

Thank you. Both methods worked when removing the float properties from the images.
