HTML Introduction to HTML and CSS Adding a New Web Page Write the HTML

PlaceIMG

The website does not work properly, I can't write the specific size that I need, I can only scroll down or up and it takes forever... I think may be you could also give different choices to work with in the future just in case one doesn't work like in this case... Thanks

Show the URL that you're having problems with, perhaps someone can suggest a solution.

I didn't mean the URL of the service itself, I meant show the specific URL you are using to get an image of a specific size.

http://placeimg.com/640/480/any

This works fine, the problem I have is in the webpage, it does not let me enter specific sizes of the images I want, I lets me only by scrolling up or down.

Perhaps it's a browser issue. I don't have any trouble using the page with Chrome.

But you don't really need the page — it's easy to construct a URL to fit your needs:

http:‌//placeimg.com/width/height/category

Just replace "width" and "height" with the desired size in pixels, and "category" with one of: "animals", "arch", "nature", "people", "tech", or "all".

Yeah it might be, I’m using safari... thank you for taking the time to answer me, you can tell I am really new at this... Have a great day!
