Basic CSS: Size Your Images (SEND HELP!)

Hello, I am totally new to this coding. I was doing good until I hit this hurdle. I am confident that my code is correct as the program says so, however it states that my browser is not at 100% zoom. I am currently using Safari: Version 12.1.2 (12607.3.10). I shall post my code and I want thank you guys in advance for this help!

<link href="" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
  .red-text {
    color: red;

h2 {
font-family: Lobster, monospace;
width: 100px;

p {
  font-size: 16px;
  font-family: monospace;

Hi Shayna!

Welcome to freeCodeCamp :wave: :smile:

The code you’ve posted has come out a bit wonky on the forum, but it looks like you’ve forgotten to wrap your new .smaller-image CSS rule in curly brackets.

You should have something like:

.smaller-image {
    width: 100px;

Then you need to apply this rule to the img element by giving it the class of .smaller-image.

In Safari, to make sure your browser zoom is 100%, just use the following keyboard shortcut:

CMD + 0 (Hold down the command key and the zero key at the same time)

Hope that helps! :slight_smile:


Thank you so much!! I was getting so frustrated about this part. I did miss the curly brackets {}. So whenever you put .smaller-image or h2, this bracket->({ )has to behind it.

Yep, the standard way to make a CSS rule is:

selector {
   property: value;
