CSS Question

CSS Position using center of element to position element using percentage

Hi so I was making a website and I just realized that it when I want to position the html element, it will position the element using the right side of it. Here's an example of what I mean. I was trying to position an image in the center using percentages. Trimmed down version of my css code:


So when I loaded the website, it shows up with the right corner of the picture at 50%, not the center of the image at 50%. Is there anyway to position using center of the image to position the picture at 50%, and not the left or right edge of the picture being at 50%? I don't want something like
to move the picture over, but instead use the center of the picture to position the picture. If you need any more clarification just let me know.

Set a width for the image and then set the left and right margins to auto.

` {width: whatever you want; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; }  `
