Instead I am getting a small box with a standard logo. is as follows, could let me know if there is an obvious error here?

The forum uses markdown to correctly format code, check out this thread on how to type code in the forum for some examples.

I can't see any code, however I'm going to take a guess here ...

To me it sounds like you've got a file path issue with your images.

The way it works is that you have to put your images in the correct folder relative, to your HTML file.

Here's an example:

file directory structure example

Does that help?

If not, you can read up about absolute vs relative paths

Not seeing your code, but you probably want to check your src to make sure it is pointing to the image in its current directory.

I have noticed that when doing some of the exercises, my google chrome seems to be having a few glitches here and there, even though the code is right. Even the finished files I downloaded in the .zip for the lesson had a few things like images or link colors not displaying correctly. I am using a windows computer, so I believe that the issues you are having are probably problems in Google Chrome or Windows OS, assuming your code is right.

I have checked a number of times, i have also tried different browsers. so my image is saved in a file called HTML, where my sublime code is also saved. The image is called denim.jpg. The code I am writing in is as follows. <img src="HTML/denim.jpg" alt="denim image">

I have copied exactly what the video has outlined yet the images will not show.

I don't see any code...
