Can you post your code so we can check it out?

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <title>Jodie Faye Wong | Maths Graduate Programmer</title> </head> <body> <header> <a href="index.html"> <h1>Jodie Faye Wong</h1> <h2>Maths Graduate Programmer</h2> </a> <nav> <ul> <li><a href="index.html">portfolio</a></li> <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li> <li><a href="contac.html">Contact</a></li> </ul>

Try wrapping the code you're posting with three backticks (```) before and after so it shows up here (instructions in the Markdown Cheatsheet that's linked below the text box).

Your image element looks fine, so I'm not sure, unless your folders got messed up accidentally - maybe check to make sure your index.html file and the img folder are both direct children of the top-level folder.

Unrelated, but I noticed that the link to your contact page is missing a letter ("contac.html"), so you can fix that to prevent a broken link later on.

Ye index folder. Duuuuh. Thanks for the help
