img is self closing, you can - but don't need to - write <img src="image.png" /> the slash at the end isn't necessary. if I'm not mistaken, it was recommended in HTML4, but it's obsolete in HTML5. I'm not sure about that.

The requirement of ending slash ( / ) in self closing ( empty ) tags was only for XML branch of Html ( XHtml)... Syntaxe of Html is relatively permissive ( because based on SGML, as XML is too, while XHtml is based on XML ), so browsers accept it, but that's not valid code: it must be avoided ^^

image tags do not need a closing tag. They are closed with a / before the > like so <img src/>
