CSS basic: Size images

Hi there,

I am happy to join FreeCodeCamp to learn how to code! I just started HTML et CSS and I have an issue with my code but I don’t understand why…
Could you help me to understand?

I am at the beginning of “CSS basic: Size your images”
I receized the image (class “smaller-image”) with 100px wide as asked, but it does not work.

Thanks in advance!

<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Lobster" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
.red-text {
  color: red;

h2 {
  font-family: Lobster, monospace;

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

.smaller-image {
  width: 100px;
  height: auto;

<h2 class="red-text">CatPhotoApp</h2>
<p class="red-text">Click here to view more <a href="#">cat photos</a>.</p>

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

<form action="https://freecatphotoapp.com/submit-cat-photo">
  <label><input type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor" checked> Indoor</label>
  <label><input type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor"> Outdoor</label><br>
  <label><input type="checkbox" name="personality" checked> Loving</label>
  <label><input type="checkbox" name="personality"> Lazy</label>
  <label><input type="checkbox" name="personality"> Energetic</label><br>
  <input type="text" placeholder="cat photo URL" required>
  <button type="submit">Submit</button>

it works perfectly tho

If you’re using Safari, there seems to be a bug with this particular exercise.

only thing i can think of here add ; after Lobster

That would actually break the CSS…

Thank you @jsdisco for your answer! Indeed, it works with Chrome :slight_smile:
