Hey Suresh,

I think the problem here is that you can't change the styles of the image here because the image is not shown in your gallery. If you click on the images the images are shown on the external website you're linking to via the anchor element.

To answer your question: You can remove the horizontal scrollbar via the CSS property overflow-x and the value of hidden.

Like so:

img {
    overflow-x: hidden;

However in your case it won't work because you are linking to the images on an external website. If you want to display the images larger on your site after the user clicks on them you could use a jQuery Lightbox. If you decide to do this I recommend watching the jQuery Basics Course here on Treehouse as you're building a Lightbox in the third section of the course. I hope I could understand your question and help you.

Do you mean if overflow-x: hidden is future-proof? I absolutely think so! Every browser supports it and I don't see any reason why this should change in the near future.

If you're interested in learning more about the property I recommend to read about it in the Mozilla Developer Network: overflow, overflow-x

You can fix this problem by adding a padding declaration and set it to 0 on mobile devices.

 @media (max-width: 480px)
#gallery {
    width: 100%;
    padding: 0;

I hope this helps.
