Image not showing up properly, through my custom post.

I created a custom post for a portfolio section. All my fields work except my image field. for some reason when I add an uploaded image to the custom post it does not appear.

When I inspect the webpage it shows the image having width 250px and height of 0. Also when I hover over the link in the inspect element console the image does not appear. I know for a fact that the link for the image is correct. I have no idea what could be the error here.

Here is my loop for my custom post.


                    $args = array (
                        'post_type' => 'portfolio'
                    $query = new wp_Query( $args );


                <?php if( $query->have_posts() ) : while( $query->have_posts() ) : $query->the_post(); ?>
                <div class="portfolio">
                    <img class="portfoliopic" scr="<?php the_field('image'); ?>" />
                    <h2><?php the_field('title'); ?></h2>
                    <p><?php the_field('description'); ?></p>
                <?php endwhile; endif; wp_reset_postdata(); ?>

btw this is a child theme, but I don't think that has anything to do with the error

thanks for the help

Surely it should be 'src' not 'scr'?

-_- I hate myself right now. Thanks for spotting that out. I cant believe I spent hours looking up solutions, when it was a stupid typo. Once again thank you
