Why doesn't my coding on Treehouse work in "preview?" I am just adding images!

I am just adding image tags within the footer tags in the "Front End Web Design" module of the TreeHouse course I am taking, for college credit at Long Beach City College in CA. But I add the tags and it doesn't work! The tags I add are as follows: <img src="facebook-wrap.png" alt="facebook logo"> and <img src="twitter-wrap.png" alt="twitter logo"> Simple enough, right? Well, I have tried working with this about 10 times now. At first I got the "bummer" message, and yet when I hit preview I saw the facebook and twitter logos where they should be. Now I only see broken image icons, and the "alt" attribute does not say "facebook logo" or "twitter logo." Also, I am getting a different result each time I do this exercise, and I do it the same way each time, and it previews differently now! What am I to do?

if your imgs are in a folder called " img " then you sould put it in the url like this :

      <img src="img/facebook-wrap.png" alt="Facebook logo">
      <img src="img/twitter-wrap.png" alt="Twitter logo">
      <p>&copy; 2013 Nick Pettit.</p>

Thank you.
