Could you post the code that you used? You may have the incorrect source connected to the image. Make sure to have the correct folder/file name.

The code seems to be correct. Make sure you dragged the numbers-01.jpg file into the img folder on the left hand side of your screen.

Thanks for your help everyone. Yes, the .jpg file is in my img folder on the left hand side. A few months back, My cursor stopped displaying while I was using Maya 3D. I was able to make it show up again by changing the graphics display, or resolution or something?? I'll see if I change my setting back to normal, maybe that will work?

I honestly do not know about the graphics display and such, sorry :( I took your code and replaced it with an image of mine and it worked fine.

OMG! I figured it out! I had labeled my folder on the left hand side of workspace 'image' instead of 'img'. Thanks for testing out and looking at my code Joe. Good group of people on this website!

I'm having the same problem even with my folder labeled correctly. Here's my code:

<img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt="">

I just tried copying all of the html onto a text document on my computer and placing it in the same folder locally with the img folder and not through the workspace and it worked correctly.

Yeah, your code looks right. Glad you found a work-around. I'm new to Treehouse, not sure if there are some bugs in the system?

While I am new to Treehouse too, I haven't had any of those problems. Anytime they mention some aspect should work it does - Odd that it doesn't work. The code is correct though so maybe it's the directory? Are you sure you placed the image into the img folder?
