HTML allows you to add the file upload functionality to your website by adding a file upload button to your webpage with the help of the <input> tag. The <input type=” file”> defines a file-select field and a “Browse“ button for file uploads.

Here's how it's done in three easy steps:

  1. Copy the URL of the image you wish to insert.
  2. Next, open your index.html file and insert it into the img code. Example: <img src=”(your image URL here)”>
  3. Save the HTML file. The next time you open it, you'll see the webpage with your newly added image.

Here is an example of how to upload an image in HTML:

  2. Create a new HTML file.
  3. Copy the code snippet using the 'copy' button and paste it into that HTML file in your IDE.
  4. Save the file and run the HTML file directly from the file location to get the output.
