Sizing an Image using CSS

Sizing an Image using CSS


Hi Guys

Wandering if you can help.
I keep getting this error message:
"Your img element should have the class smaller-image"
I thought that: .smaller-img was the class
Can anyone tell me where I am going wrong?

Many thanks:

.smaller-image { width: 100px; }

.red-text {
color: red;

h2 {
font-family: Lobster, Monospace;

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

.smaller-image {
width: 100px;

img {
width :100px

What does your HTML look like?

All of your CSS is correct, and you’re right that .smaller-image is a class. However, the error message you’re receiving is not saying that your CSS is incorrect, but instead, that you are not applying your CSS to your HTML properly.

Assuming I had a class called .big-div, and I wanted to apply it to a div element, my code would look like this:


.big-div { width: 1000px; }


<div class="big-div"></div>

Note that when giving an HTML element a class, you omit the period, meaning that the following syntax is incorrect:

<div class=".big-div"></div>


Mmm…You are okey, but be sure to create the class in the style sheet and then add it to your <img> html element.

Your img element should look like this:

<img class="smaller-image" src=....>

As I can see in the devtool, in the code you have attached, the image doesn´t have any class. Check it!


@Victor and Azgard that’s great thanks very much. The way you both explained it makes sense. That’s awesome, much appreciated.
