Confusion with how to make a website

How do I allow all images to fill their parent elements?

2 Answers

Hi Akila,

Is this from a challenge? If so, which one?

A width of 100% will allow an element to fill it's parent container.

If I have a <div> that I want an image to fill entirely, I find that div img{ width:100%; min-width: 100%; max-width: 100%; }

works. it's not pretty, but it works. Just make sure the parent <div> is the size you want it to be.
