HTML Images Syntax

You can insert or embed an image on your web page by using the tag. the Syntax is here.

The <img> tag is called an empty tag, and it does not have a closing tag.

<img> tag has two (2) required attributes:

  • src – Defines the path to the image
  • alt – Defines an alternate text for the image (When an image is missing then, the alternate text will be shown on the place of Image.)
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

   <head>
      <title> HTML - Image </title>
   </head>
	
   <body>
