The <picture> tag in HTML is used to gives flexibility to the web-developers to specify image resources. The <picture> tag contains <source> and <img> tags. The attribute value is set to load more appropriate image.
The <img> element is used for the last child element of the picture declaration block. The <img> element is used to provide backward compatibility for browsers that do not support the element, or if none of the source tags matched.
