The <img> tag is used to insert a graphic or photographic image directly into the flow of text and other images. No line breaks or carriage returns are automatically inserted before or after the image.

This tag can be placed in an a element to provide a clickable image for a hyperlink. A border will be automatically drawn around all four sides of an image used as a link. You can remove the border using style sheets or the border attribute.
