The <img> element embeds an image in the current document at the location of the element's definition. The <img> element has no content; it is usually replaced inline by the image designated by the src attribute, the exception being for left or right-aligned images that are "floated" out of line.

Example Code:
<img alt="Sunset Image" src="image/sunset.jpg" width="300" height="226">
Sunset Image
