  1. First, we write <! DOCTYPE html> which we used as an instruction to the web browser about what version of HTML file is written in.
  2. Secondly, the <html> tag is used to indicate the beginning of an HTML document.
  3. As above now <head> tag is used to contain information about web page. In this tag a <title> tag is used which helps us to specify a webpage title. Both <head> and <title> tags are Paired tags. So, both have </head> and </title> ending tags respectively.

  5. In first we use width and height attributes to give dimensions to image and margin to position image anywhere in website. You can increase and decrease margin as user’s choice.
  6. In second, we use width and height to give dimensions to image and then we use padding, as we know padding is used to increase and decrease space within element’s body and we use four different values to give padding differently to all sides.
  7. In third, we use width and height as previous tags to give dimensions to image and then we use position attribute to give it required position, if you don’t understand what position is then our position articles may help you in this. And after giving relative value to position we give it bottom and left, you can also use top and right or any other combination which you like.
