Hi you can add a src attribute to your images like below:

Remember to add the location of the image inside the quotes of the src attribute.

  <img src="" alt="A picture of me in Spain">

The src attribute identifies an image by a URL. The image defined by the URL is retrieved by the browser and inserted into the document when the page loads.

<img src="/img/ur-img.jpg">```
