I've got all the coding to mirror the tutorial, but my photos aren't showing up on the actual page. What I'm seeing in the demo of my page are little boxes that link to a URL Not Found page. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Hi Matthew,

Posting your code would make things easier to see where you have gone wrong.

This could be a number of issues. Your image directory may not be correct or there may be errors in the code.

In your folder containing the website do you have a folder named "img" containing the pictures you are trying to display?

I do have a folder named img with the images in it, unzipped and downloaded from Treehouse from where Mr. Pettit directed me to download them.
