Why do I get an error: img{ display:block; margin:0 auto 30px; max-width:150px; border-radius:100%; }

Error says: "Did you set the max width to 150px?"

}

a {
  text-decoration: none;

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;
}

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a:hover {
  color: #32673f;
}

h1 {
  font-family: โ€˜Changa Oneโ€™, sans-serif;
  font-size: 1.75em;
  font-weight: normal;
}

img {
  max-width: 100%;
}

#gallery {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;
}

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

nav ul {
  list-style: none;
  margin: 0 10px;
  padding: 0;
}

nav li {
  display: inline-block;
}

nav a {
  font-weight: 800;
  padding: 15px 10px;
}

Because of your margin: 0 auto 30px; and you should target the class of this picture not the attribute of img. If you're using this syntax you should set the numbers of all the margin properties. Right now your's saying that the top is 0px, right is auto and the bottom is 30px.

What you can try is to center is with margin: 0 auto; and override the bottom margin underneath it with margin-bottom: 30px;

Thanks, mtch. I used your suggestion to create a class. The solution was to add this to the CSS: .profile-photo{max-width:150px; border-radius:100%}.
