Make sure you close your <img> tag. There are 2 ways to do this: <img src=""></img> or <img src="" />

Might also help to double-check the src and which directory you're accessing the image from (if the index.html is in the root directory, you'll need the 'img' directory in the root as well.)

The img tag doesn't need a closing tag. It's self-closing so just double check the link to the source and make sure it's correct. It's case sensitive too so if the source is all in lowercase, the link name must be too.
