I'm stumped on adding a jpg image from an "img" directory.

In one of the tasks I'm supposed to insert a ".jpg" image from an "img" directory. I don't know what an "img" directory is or how to use it. The code I typed into the body is img src="cupcake.jpg" (with closing opening and closing brackets, of course).

Help!

A directory is a folder in your site so what you probably have to do is this:

<img src="img/image.jpg" />

or alternatively <img src="img/image.jpg" alt="image">
