CSS

I still have to scroll across to view all of my image even tho I have set the max width in css?

Hello, I have added my own images to my HTML page, they are larger than the example images. When I put them all inside a div element and then set the max-width to 940px in css, I still have to scroll across to view them. Does setting this max-width not make it so that my images fit inside the browser without scrolling across?

Hi sarah

if you post your code i would be able to check where you are going wrong.but below will achieve what your trying to do.

#wrapper{
   width:940px;
   margin:0 auto;
}
img{
  max-width:100%;
}
<div id="wrapper">
<img src="your path" alt="sometext">
</div>

in this example the img width will be 940px or 100% of the parent div.

Hi my code is the same as above but without the img part as I have not got to that bit, so that must be the problem! Thanks
