How does the <img> tag work?

I added an image that was in my computer to the folder i created where my html text and page is saved. I want to add the image and i added this <img src="C:\users\katherine\desktop\html\cameralens.jpg"/> It's not working and I don't understand why! :( Someone please help! Thanks

Try <img src="file:///C:\users\katherine\desktop\html\cameralens.jpg"/> If the image is in the same directory as the html then this should work too - <img src="cameralens.jpg"/>

since your image is in same folder of code paste it in desktop and then use the relative path of that image it might work
