Images appear broken after adding them to workspace

I am uploading the images just as the video says, but when I refresh the preview screen the images appear broken. I tried to upload them again but its not working. How can I fix this?

What does your coding look like? Could you paste it here so we can see where you've gone wrong or how to help you better?

Hi Brandon,

I am trying but it does not appear. How can I add it here so the code is visible?

I found the mistake. I typed a capital letter in the name of the image folder and did not consider that in the code. It's working fine now.

Hi Rodolfo,

Check the path to the image, for example if your index.html file is in the same level of the img folder, and you have your image inside the img folder, you should add them like this: <img src="img/image.jpg" alt="">

index.html img/ -->image.jpg

Regards, D.

Hi Denny,

The index.html file is in the same level as the img folder. I tried to add them as you suggested but still is not working. Any idea what else should I check? Once I upload the images I can see them properly if I click them inside the img folder, so the files seem to be ok.
