HTML img tag

<img> tag adds image in the web page. We write the proper address of an image in the src attribute of the image tag.


 <p>Alt text is visible when image is not available.</p>
 <img src="files/logo.png" alt="codingb logo"/>
Try </>

path problem

The name of the image has been given along with the type extension (my logo.png) in the src attribute. when image and the file (in which image is used) are in the same folder then the name is written only.

But if the image and file (in which image is used) are at the different locations, then absolute address should be given in the src attribute along with the name and extension. For instance,


 <p> Here the complete path has been given in the src attribute. </p>
 <img src="" alt="codingb logo" />
Try </>

Tip: The path problem is solved in the same way as has been described above for all the elements having src attribute.

Tag omission

img element is self closing tag i.e. there is no end tag.

Global Attributes

All the global attributes are applicable on the img element.
