Challenge: Build a Tribute Page

Hey! You can click use google to search for an image, then right click on “copy image link” to save it’s url which you can use to set an absolute url to the image on your webpage. Alternatively, you can download it locally using the “save image as” option and use it as a relative url.

However you could get in trouble if you use images off of google without having the proper knowledge of their usage rights.

I would suggest searching for images with a CC0 license which you can use freely. for example here’s an image of marie curie which is available on wikemedia.

and here is it’s link https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/d9/Mariecurie.jpg

Thanks a lot for replying! But I dont really understand with CC0 license nor downloading then use it. Still I tried your images link and it still seems doesn’t work either. (I wonder if this this involed which I have been using a web called ‘Avast Secure Browser’). Thanks! And I’m sorry about my lack of acknowledgement about these.

@ CapHenry Don’t worry about it haha, we’ve all been there.

copy paste the code i write below and test it on your browser.

if it still does not work i think you might have a problem with your browser.

and CC0 is the short form for creative commons license. basically, you can not use a person’s image if you do not have their permission but if an image on the internet has this license, you can do whatever you want with it.

and if you want a refresher on how to use images in html, I would suggest going through this article.
