You need to create a class called .thick-green-border and apply that the the image, rather than using the img element selector


#3

to add to what Gwesolo was saying, please note the instructions say:

Create a class called thick-green-border. This class should add a 10px, solid, green border around an HTML element. Apply the class to your cat photo.

When someone says ‘create a class’, they mean add a new class to your element.
Eg. create a new class ‘answer’ in your p element, then you would do this:

<p class="answer">
Then when you are asked to style that class you go to your css (inside the <style> element) and write 
.answer { /** put all my style elements for answer here ***/
  color: red;
}

hope this helps.

Create a class called thick-green-border. Than given the border property and value 10px solid green. Finally apply the class to your cat photo. that’s it!

sorry i still dont get it. please give explanation using the code above.


#6

Up in the css section, you’ll define a class (starts with a ‘.’) called thick-green-border:

  .thick-green-border {
    border: 10px solid green;
     }

Then in the html portion, change your < img . . . like so:

<img class="smaller-image thick-green-border" src="https://bit.ly/fcc-relaxing-cat" alt="A cute orange cat lying on its back.">

The image now has two classes applied to it, smaller-image and thick-green-border.
