Show me the path you use in your html file. You may need to precede path with ../

Hi Debra - I believe I found the error. In your <a> tag, you are linking to the image correctly, but within the actual <img> tag, the file name changes from (numbers-01.jpg) to (numbers.01.jpg). Try replacing the period with with the hyphen and that should work.

                <a href="img/numbers-01.jpg">
                    <img src="img/numbers.01.jpg" alt=""> <!-- here is where the error is -->
                    <p>Experimentation with color and texture.</p>

I hope this helps!

is there a 404 error when you click the image or do they just not show up at all after you launch the preview?
