Hi Quinn,

I'd need to see your actual code to be sure, but my guess is if you're seeing a broken link it means that you inserted the image tags correctly, but did not specify the correct file path. This could be a typo, or neglecting a folder on the way to the final image.

If you are using relative links for images you have make sure you jump in and out of directories correctly (../ to jump out one level) Also, make sure to include the file extension in the end (../img/sample1.jpg) for example.. If you are including an image through a link, make sure the link has the image file name in the end (www.example.com/index/gallery/images/sample1.jpg) Or else the image will not work properly (I tried using some Facebook images and it didn't load correctly).. These are the mistakes I made any way...hope they help
