I'm having trouble linking images with the img src tag.

I don't seem to be able to link imgs correctly and I can't figure out what the issue is. I have a root folder named info and two subfolders named css and img. Within the img subfolder I have two images I'm trying to link named leaf.jpg and trichomes.jpg. I got these imgs off google images and they aren't working, but images from treehouse's downloads are? Is it the images or my code? The code I'm using is

<section> <ul> <li><img src="img/trichomes.jpg" alt="sorry image isn't available"> </li> <li><img src="img/indicaleaf.jpg"></li> <li></li> </ul> </section> help would be greatly appreciated ty

Are you certain that the images are .jpg? Check the file extensions: right click => properties => should be right under the name..

also: make sure that the index.html is in the root folder. If it isn't then the src extensions are wrong.

if that isn't it, include entire index.html in troubleshoot.

Thanks for the reply, they're all .jpg and all the html pages are in the root folder. I'm having no problems with the images I downloaded from treehouse, I'm just having issues with images I got from google images. Is it possible to encript images or something, so other people cant use them on webpages? include the entire index.html in troubleshoot? how would I do that?

Just see if you haven't misspelled a name or something, this could possibly happen.
