HTML Images

HTML Images are used to enhance websites, to illustrate stories, to present products, in ad displays etc.

HTML provides web developers three ways for displaying images. They are

  • <img> - Used to display a simple image.
  • <picture> - Used to display different images for different display/device scenarios.
  • <map> - Used to display image with clickable areas.


Use <img> to add an image into a document.

HTML Picture

Use <picture> to provide versions of an image for different display/device scenarios.

Note: The <picture> tag contains zero or more <source> elements and one <img> element.

Use <map> tag to define an image-map. An image-map is an image with clickable areas.

Note: The <map> tag contains one or more <area> elements.
