How To HTML Code Images Pictures For Dummies

Updated on March 10, 2011

HTML Coding Images

This is a basic guide for beginners and/or dummies to learn how to HTML code images into your blog or webpage.

Coding An Image

When you have a blog or website you have to be able to add pictures so knowing how to code images is a must!

So, let's get right to it...

An image code looks like this:

<img src="image source">

So, if you have an image that is hosted online, and the URL of the image is say: "" then your image code will look like this:

<img src="">

If your image is saved on your computer in this location; C/MyPhotos/Picture then your code will look like this:

<img src="C/MyPhotos/Picture">

Just remember, the code for images is image source but shortened down to "img src" and remember to close your code (>).

Changing The Size Of The Image

To change the size of your image you have a few options...

Your first option is to change the size of the image by percentage. Like this:

<img src="imagesource" width=45%>

Your next option is to change the image size by pixels. Like this:

<img src="imagesource" width=1000 height=1200>

Insert your "imagesource" and try this out with different percentages and pixels, and see how it changes and what you like.

Photo Alignment

You can change the alignment of your image by adding this tag; "align="

Such as:

<img src="imagesource" size="50%" align="center">

Test this out as well and see how it works for you.

You can align; center, left(default), or right.
