It wont let me use an already downloaded image which is easier than finding one online. help


#1

i used the properties and file HTTP with file name and location through my windows but it will not show in the code academy file we are suppose to create. i don't understand.


#2

you mean you did something like this:

<img src="C:\users\username\pictures\picturename.jpg" />

be glad that doesn't work....
If you want to use a image from your computer, you have to upload it (dropbox, google drive, this forum for all i know) and then use the image url/location.

What he means is if it did work, there'd be a major security problem- Codecademy would be able to access your local files. This means if you have anything private on your computer, they would be able to access it. So, like he said, be glad that doesn't work...
