Do I need to save the project image files differently? (The images are not properly showing up when I test my index.html)


I am currently on track with a simple website build. I have downloaded the project files and I enter the code as the video instructs me to do so. But, when I open the index.html file in my browser the images do not appear correctly.

<img src="img/you-bake-me-blush.gif" alt="You Bake Me Blush">

My gut is telling me that I have to adapt <img src= > to where I have saved the project files/.

This is really holding me up, I would be very appreciative of any guidance.

Can you post your code?

It's best practice to save images in a separate folder (ie. images or img). Then in your index.html file, you need to ensure that you're using the correct path when inserting an image - <src ="images/some-image.jpg" />.

check your "src" to see if the path is correctly
