Hi MarkSugden,

your css is correct.
Have you tried adding the class=“smaller-image” to the img tag in the html?


#3

I can try that. yes. where do you insert in the img tag?


#4

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make easier to read.

Note: Backticks are not single quotes.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard. The “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) will also add backticks around text.

@nesanime I tried adding class=“smaller image” to the image tag right after <img. No luck man


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

You almost have it.
There is a typo in the class after <img
try smaller-image, with the dash.
It needs to be exactly the same word.

I got it. Thank you for the help. Lesson learned.
