    I realize this is an amateur question, but believe it or not i’ve been trying to figure this out for hours. Sad, I know. I am trying to figure out how to add space between images. In the pictures I have only shown one image with the top of another, but I want to create space between these two. I’m guessing maybe it’s somewhere with the third picture really, but what do I know. I have included three pictures, along with the paths from cssedit hopefully showing what I may need to show. Thank you to anyone who may be able to help. Let me know if I need to post anything else.

    links to my css –


    Unfortunately your links do not contain enough HTML to be useful.

    We need to see the images in place with the text.

    As long as you are using basic HTML and appropriate text tags / elements it should just be a matter of margins &/or padding.

    You should remember though that images are inline elements and so you might need to add display:block depending on what it is you are trying to do.


    Paulie_D is on the right track, images by default are used to display inline.

    What this basically means is that you can’t really change their lay-out that well.

    In order to get more control over spacing, margin, padding, dimensions, etc. A good approach is to make them behave as ‘inline-block’ element, or ‘block’ elements.

    I would recommend ‘inline-block’, as it’s a bit easier to use with text-alignment.

    Wy don’t you try the following code and then change some of the properties and see what happens:

    img {
      display: inline-block;
      margin: 25px 10px;

    Now change the values for ‘margin’ and see what happens! ;-)
