Hello Amber,

I would love to help you with this issue. Would you mind sharing your HTML so I can get a better understanding of why this is happening?

Considering your image is in a folder named 'img' your image tag should like similar to the following.

<img src="img/you-bake-me-blush.gif" alt="You Bake Me Blush">

Make sure the src is pointing to the right location on disk to find the image.

@Amber -

The 2 most common mistakes when images are not showing up are a typo with the file names or using the wrong file path.

So triple check that you are using the exact name of the image files in your HTML, if that doesn't resolve the issue, check the file paths.

Here's a tutorial on file paths that should get you going.

Let us know how you are getting along with this here in this thread.

is it linking to the image file correctly? if you see the small icon usually that means its not pointing to the correct file.
