images and my code ... something funny, help please!

Hi, thank you for reading this.

So here's my code:

<img src="baba/WebDesign/GAHM/GandMommiesLOGO.png" alt="Galileo And His Mommies Logo">

<img src="baba/WebDesign/GAHM/Geyes.jpg" alt="The Three Of Us" height="25%" width="25%">

My issue is that my images are not showing they were find one night then I stopped working and started again the next day but they images were not showing. I have tried everything I know and I can't get anywhere.

I do know the file paths are correct, or as best I can assess that.

Any ideas? I would so appreciate some help! Thanks in advance!

Triple check your paths.


The pic size should be set with px not %

Change this

height="25%" width="25%"

to height="25px" width="25px"

and adjust size

@Emily -

Like @Perry said, it's almost always an issue with your path. So here's a quick primer on file paths that should get you going.

Also depending on your web server, the directories & filename that makes up your path may be case-sensitive. So triple check the spelling and capitalization of the the path.

Let us know how you are getting along with this here in this thread.

Yay! Success!

James and Perry, thank you for reaching out. It was a file path issue. On mac's it is not a straight forward process but a researched a good work around. If anyone is interested....


Thanks again!

@Emily - I love it when people solve their own problems. Rock on with your bad self. :guitar:

Although I think there's an easier way, by simply dragging a file into a terminal window.
