[Flexbox]: Shrinking images within a flex child

I have a flex box that contains three columns (three divs) as its flex children. The columns shrink in the proportions that I want them to when I resize the browser, BUT I also want an image inside of one of the columns to shrink down when the browser gets below a certain size.

What's the best way to do this?

Make your images fluid by giving them attributes and values such as max-width: 100%; and height: auto;


<img src="image.jpg" style="max-width:100%; height:auto;" alt="This is an Image">

Ah, it works perfectly! Thanks!

You're welcome! :)
