One thing to ask


#1


Im am a little bit confused on HTML and CSS Part 1 8/15. When it says add the URL of the image, so how can I get the URL of the image. My question is where do I get the URL. Is it like a link to a website? Please explain what the lesson means.


<img src= " The link of the image? What is it?" />

IF you do know what it means by add the URL of the image. Please send a reply to me.

website use images, you can use this images. (keep in mind copy right)

lets say you have an image:

its a screenshot of python course i still had, if you right click on the image and select copy image location, you get the url at which the image is located, which you then can use


#3

Thank you! I will try that


#4

you can also find images using google images, search for an image, select: view image. Now the url ends with .jpg or .png, now you have the image location which you can use as source


#5

Thanks I was doing that I will surely get back to you.


#6

What do you mean by that? I don't understand


#7

In the lessons, you can only use images which are accessible on other websites


#8

Okay. So, when I added the link it was really long. Should that happen?


#9

you used google images? Then you should first view the image, and not use the google url because that is really long, or use an url shortener.


#10

Where do I find the URL shortener. Please can you reply quickly? Im so sorry for the questions I give you.


#11

just like you find anything? use a search engine (google, bing, duckduckgo)


#12

Okay thank you very much


#13

I says that it can not shorten my url


#14

without providing more details what you did, we can't help you. We are not magicians.

https://developers.google.com/url-shortener/ and https://goo.gl/ well first off, this should help you with anything you want to know with the url shortener. Secondly, some urls are already short. For example: www.amazon.com. You can't shorten that anymore or else you won't go to amazon homepage. Thirdly, for this lesson, why are you looking to shorten the url? You need the whole url for this lesson. Now, you might could shorten this, but the lesson is probably looking for that very specific url address for the photo so tampering with it just to make it more efficient is probably not a good idea. Do you need help in where to post the link or how to format it? Or are you just wondering in general about the shortening and such?


#16

And btw you can shorten the picture url for this lesson: https://goo.gl/TdGlqG that is the shortened version. So unless you are looking at a different url for a different picture it should have shortened.


#17

Do not understand. What do you mean

Ok so lets get some things cleared up. You are on Lesson 8.) of Common HTML Elements? You are asked to, "1.
In index.html, below the ordered list, add an image. Use the following as the image URL:

https://s3.amazonaws.com/codecademy-content/courses/web-101/web101-image_brownbear.jpg"

Earlier, you asked, "Im am a little bit confused on HTML and CSS Part 1 8/15. When it says add the URL of the image, so how can I get the URL of the image. My question is where do I get the URL. Is it like a link to a website? Please explain what the lesson means."

First off, the url is given to you in the instructions. That black box holds the url. Secondly, Stetim has answered your questions regarding shortening urls and what do urls do. You asked where do I find the URL shortener and he said find it on a search engine then you said that it cannot shorten your url.

Then I came in to help and I have given you the resources to look at the shortener url with google. Second, I noted the some urls can't be shortened like the example I gave so if your url is already really short it might not be able to be shortened. Thirdly, I assumed you are working on the lesson therefore I wanted to let you know to instead of trying to short the url to just copy and paste the long url into the lesson as that is what the lesson is looking for. Also, I noted after additional research that the url of this photo can be shortened. I gave that shortened url.

Are you looking at another picture to use? If so this lesson wants a specific picture so I would suggest using the url in the instructions instead of finding your own pic. Do you need help on the lesson or are you out of curiosity looking at other pics and shortened urls? If you could clarify what you are wanting a little I think it would help us both :smiley: :thumbsup:

Yes i want to see what type of image the lesson wants me to use

Well I believe it is just a picture off of the Wikipedia grizzly bear or brown bear page so its nothing to special.
