Floating images

After floating images to the left, I've got only 1 picture in the second raw and 2 in the 3rd. Footer stayed centered. What's wrong?

Hi Kira,

Could you please post the code you have, both the HTML and CSS.

Howdy Kira, Withouth being able to see the code, I'd suggest looking at the sizes of your images and make sure that, all together, they can fit inside their parent element. For example, if I have 3 images each with a 500px width, they wouldn't all fit in a body (or div) that was only 1000px wide, even if I floated them.

Howdy Kira, Consider this codepen The original images were 350 px wide. With margins and padding, you have to shrink the images so that more than one is on a row in the 940px wide box.

All the images are 350px vide, but still second raw fits only 1

are all the images the same height? Is it possible that the height of an image could be pushing down a float beneath it? I'm having trouble replicating your problem.

footer
{
clear: both;
float: left;
width: 100%;
text-align: center;
}

I get this when that is added http://imgur.com/KKLFwtd

maybe also try setting the img width: 100%;

Thank you. My footer is ok, everything is aligned as it should be, the problem is with second row of images, only one image stays, so I have a blank space on the 2nd row. Image width is set to 100%.

I've finally figured it out! I've changed few height value and had to shorten the capture on the first image. Thank you
