Set the <img> element's src attribute to a path that goes one level out of the current folder and inside a folder named

<!DOCTYPE html> 
    <title>Portfolio Page</title>
    <img src="logo.png" alt="Site logo">
      <li><a href="">Home</a></li>
      <li><a href="">Portfolio</a></li>                
    <h1 id="portfolio">My Portfolio</h1>

Heya Fidelis Chime! Learning to work with relative file paths can be really tricky at first, because it uses syntax that is usually pretty unfamiliar or uncommon in your day-to-day computer use!

As Rick Gleitz has mentioned, you might want to step back a few videos and watch the first video of this stage. It will help get you a bit more familiar with the approaches we use in HTML. As a quick reminder, to link to a target file in the directory above the current reference point (the invoking HTML file), you can prefix two dots to the file path. For instance, if we were to begin a file path with ../ then we would be looking inside the immediate parent directory.

Either way - the best way to get familiar with this process is just to practice, experiment, and see what works. Hope this helps!

Hi Fidelis,

I recommend rewatching the first video of this stage. Keep in mind that paths work the same for <img> tags as they do for <a> tags. Hope this helps.
