Need help regarding div tag

My question is what exactly is the difference in using img tag within div tag and ouside the div tag as I have noticed while making "Smells like Bakin" project we used <img src...> within div tag at one place and outside div tag at other places. How does this effect the layout?

Thanks in advance

It really just comes down to nesting things. Divs do not carry any sort of layout or style inherently. It just kind of says, this is a "block" or "division" of my website. It gives you a hook to style something, or a way to layout multiple elements by putting them all inside of a div.

But divs do not effect layout until you apply styling or positions to them.

Thanks Kevin for your help. That means using img tag within div tag and outside it won't make any difference if we don't wanna change the style of the image?
