Hi @Alexmorris1971

I hope you are doing great. The img tag is used to embed images into HTML document. The value of the src attribute is the path to the image you want to embed in the HTML document and each img tag should have the src attribute.

The alt attribute is the alternative text that the browser displays if the image fails to load for some reason. It is also used by assistive technologies such as screen readers. Its value should describe the image. Therefore, you should always have alt attribute in an img tag though it is not mandatory. You can also set its value to an empty string if the image is a descriptive image.

For more about the img tag, you can read the MDN docs.
