Hi ,
Can amp-img accept a url link as I need to display the image? I tried using the below codes and was not able to display the image.

<amp-img alt="" src="https://example.com/example/example.jpg"></amp-img>

The nice thing about amp is that you can easily test it to see if works.

Add it to your page, then open the page in chrome and add #development=1 after the url in the address bar. This validates the amp code in the console (inspect element). If it works a message will appear in the console:
AMP validation successful.

if it doesn't validate it will give you errors and point you to the problem.

Where snowfrost was going wrong here, incidentally, was that amp-img requires a width and height.
