HTML Introduction to HTML and CSS HTML: The Structural Foundation of Web Pages and Applications Image Tags

How would I go about using my own .jpeg as the 1st image in launch project for personal portfolio?

How do I put it inside the tag? I was able to save it in the launch space, but unable to write it into the style.

Hi MeKel!

I'm not sure I understand your issue.

Can you send example code to show me how you are attempting to reference the image?

Thank you!


I was able to figure out how to change the cat and rainbow image to an image. I just re-watched the video and it explained how to do images/image1.jp inside the tag. It worked out fine. Unsure how to screenshot on this laptop, I'm really new to all of this. I hope that explained. Thank you for being willing to assist.

What kind of laptop do you have?

If you have a Mac-type laptop use:

shift + cmd + 4

to get screen capture crosshairs cursor - then you can left-click and drag the area you want to capture (esc to quit).

It will place an image on your desktop.

For Window, I recommend installing GreenShot:


It allows you to do screencapture through the PRT SC (print screen) button, but gives you many options for how to capture (full screen vs area, for example) as well as many options for saving the captured image.

I hope that helps.

Stay safe and happy coding!

Thank you, Peter Vann. I'm using an Acer Chromebook, does that information still apply? I know the others are recommended. Thank you.

Again, I hope that helps...

Stay safe and happy coding!!!
