HTML How to Make a Website CSS: Cascading Style Sheets Center the Wrapper

Why does the #wrapper not flex to the larger size of the contained images?

Why does the #wrapper, with a max-width: 940px; not flex to the larger size of the contained images that have a width of 1024px?

As the images inside #wrapper are bigger than this containing div I thought either the #wrapper might flex to the larger size or the images might be reduced to the smaller size.

:point_right: The images are overflow-ing the wrapper.

If you want to cut off the part of the image that extends beyond the wrapper, you can set "overflow: hidden" on the wrapper.

If you'd rather have the image shrink to fit inside the wrapper, you can set "width: 100%" (or "max-width: 100%") on the image.

Thank you so much :)

Thanks Steven.

I just wanted to know the mechanics of it and you've explained that. Your tweaks really help too.
