The image already has an "alt" attribute, you can use that as model for how to add an attribute. Leave the "alt" setting as it is and add your new one next to it.

Your new attribute will have "src" instead of "alt", and the path ("images/spain.jpg") instead of the message.

Hi Joydev,

Stevens answer is correct, just as the alt attribute is included inside the <img...> self closing tag, you'll just need to add the src attribute.

Example:

<img src=”pathto/image.jpg” alt="Alternate text value.">

I hope that helps.
