I can't get the image to appear

When I click on the preview button in workspace, I can't see the "<img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt="">" image. I put the code in exactly like the video. What did I do wrong?


<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta charset= "utf-8">
    <title> Liz | Designer </title>
      <a href= "index.html">
        <h1> Liz </h1>
        <h2> Designer </h2>
          <li><a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li>
          <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li>
          <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li>
          <img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt="">
      <p>&copy; 2015 Liz. </p>

Also, just updated your question so the code is wrapped in markdown tags. Just makes it a little easier to read that's all :)

Hi Elizabeth,

I can see a couple of extra spaces in your code which whilst not directly associated with the image may have an odd affect...and if not it's good to catch them now anyway :)

<meta charset= "utf-8">

Remove the extra space after the = so it becomes:

<meta charset= "utf-8">

This line also has the same issue:

  <a href= "index.html">

and would become:

  <a href="index.html">

Aside from that, if the image is not appearing, do you have a jpg image named numbers-01 within an img folder (exactly - with no different casing)?


Problem solved! I had saved my "img" file as "IMG". I changed it to lower-case and now the image appears! I didn't realize it was cap sensitive.


No problem, glad you got it sorted :)


Thanks for this...this was my exact problem as well. Perhaps it may be a good idea to note that code is case sensitive!

I don't think I have heard that so far in the tutorials. Loving it so far though.
