An attribute is kind of like a special "setting" that you can give a HTML tag. 2 of the most common are "alt" and "src". In the main you'll use "src" for image tags and this is how you define a path.

It works like this

<img src="path/to/image.png" alt="Altternative text goes here" />

Now the type of file path used here is known as a relative file path. That means it's referring to the path from the location on of the current HTML document.
