Photo link not working

I’m working on my tribute page project and the link to my photo isn’t working. It’s a photo I have saved on my Mac desktop, and I copy/pasted the link after opening the file in Chrome Browser. Am I doing something wrong? Here’s the link to my codepen.io project https://codepen.io/bensexton/pen/yLzZQay

Thanks!

Your computer is not a server so codepen has no way of accessing it to get to the photo.

If the photo was previously somewhere on the web you can copy the link to it and use that url as the value for the src attribute.

If it’s a personal photo do some searching. There are a lot of places that will host your image for free.

Just now I tried linking the url for a photo on wikipedia and that didn’t work either.

What’s a good free host site?

Because you linked the site, not the photo. Right click on the image and select “copy image address” and paste that into your pen.

That’s something you can search for. Have you tried?
