# What is an HTML image?

In HTML, you can add images in a webpage using the <img> tag. The <img> is an empty tag which means it does not have a closing tag. This tag requires some set of attributes to specify the size, alignment, and other properties of an image.



## Attributes

Attributes are properties that you want to set for an element. Some of the commonly used attributes for <img> element are mentioned below:

• src : short for “source”, this attribute specifies the path where the source (image) is located
• alt : short for “alternate”, this optional attribute is used to specify alternate text in case the image does not appear
• width : specifies the width of the image
• height : specifies the height of the image
• align : specifies the alignment of the image. Possible values could be left, right, center etc. By default, it is set as left.
