Help with User Story #9: The img element should be centered within its parent element

Tell us what’s happening:
I cannot seem to get the img element to be centered with its parents element. I have tried the text-align : center with my div class but that only seems to center all of the text and not the img. I though images were inline elements and centered with text?
Any help would be really appreciated
Thank you!

Your code so far
#image {
max-width: 100%;
height: auto;
display: block;

  text-align: center;
