Remember, Bootstrap uses a responsive grid system, which makes it easy to put elements into rows and specify each element's relative width. Most of Bootstrap's classes can be applied to a
Here's a diagram of how Bootstrap's 12-column grid layout works:
Note that in this illustration, the
col-md-* class is being used. Here,
md means medium, and
* is a number specifying how many columns wide the element should be. In this case, the column width of an element on a medium-sized screen, such as a laptop, is being specified.
In the Cat Photo App that we're building, we'll use
xs means extra small (like an extra-small mobile phone screen), and
* is the number of columns specifying how many columns wide the element should be.
Nest your first image and your
h2 element within a single
<div class="row"> element. Nest your
h2 element within a
<div class="col-xs-8"> and your image in a
<div class="col-xs-4"> so that they are on the same line.
Notice how the image is now just the right size to fit along the text?
