Hi Italo Lemos,

At about 4:28 into the video Style the Portfolio, Nick explains how to separate the images into two columns.

Your code is really close to his, but there are some key differences. If after re-watching this part of the video, and if you still have any issues, please let me know and I'll post how to fix the code.

Kind Regards

Yeah, I made some changes in the code and forgot to go back original code but it still in one column. Did you see other mistake?

#gallery li {
  float: left;
  width 45%;
  margin: 2.5%;
  background-color: #f5f5f5;
  color: #bdc3c7;
}

Just one more error. Add a colon between width and 45%. Fixing that will give you a 2-column picture gallery.

Cheers :)
