Making all images the same size...

When I expand to desktop screen size. One of my images doesn't align properly and I believe that it is because I used my own images for this project and they are different sizes. So one of the pictures that is longer blocks the row below it from lining up underneath. Is there a way to make all the images fit into there backgrounds the same size?

You can explicitly set the image sizes using the width and heigh attributes within the img tag; or you can use CSS. Can we see your code to better understand the problem.

You can explicitly set the size of the image by selecting the image and using the width and height properties.

Hi Jonathan,

If your goal is to have all your images the same size as in the project then your best bet is to go into an image editing program and crop the offending images.

If you're ok with different height images and only want the rows to line up properly then the nth-child float clearing solution shown in this video should fix it for you.

Have you made the correction that is shown in the Teacher's Notes for this video? The expression should be 3n + 1 and not 4n

This was needed in case some captions were too long and caused blocking in the next row. However, it should also solve the problem of longer images.
