HTML IMAGES(+ FORMATTING)

 IMAGES(+ FORMATTING)



INTROCUTION

Image links are constructed as you might expect, by embedding an <img> tag inside of an anchor element <a>. Like HTML text links, image links require opening and closing anchor tags, but instead of placing text between these opening and closing tags, the developer needs to place an image tag -- with a valid source attribute value of course

By default, many browsers add a small border around image links. This default behavior is intended to give web viewers the ability to quickly decipher the difference between ordinary images and image links. Since this default is different from web browser to web browser, it may be best to squelch this ambiguity and set the border attribute of the image tag to 0 or 1.

HTML - THUMBNAILS-



Thumbnails are by far the most common type of image link seen in today's world. To create a thumbnail, one must save a low-quality version of a picture with smaller dimensions. Then, one should link this low-quality picture to its higher-quality counterpart.
