We can make image to be responsive friendly by using Bootstrap’s img-responsive class. The following is an example with this class:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<head>
<title>Bootstrap Example</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="myclass.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.1.1/css/bootstrap.min.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.1.1/css/bootstrap-theme.min.css">
<script src="http://netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.1.1/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
<style>
   .img-responsive{
      display:block;
      height:auto;
      margin-bottom:15px;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<div class="container">
<h2>Responsive Images</h2>
   <img src="http://www.javabeat.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/amazing-300x214.jpg" height="200" width="200" alt="amazing" class="img-responsive">
   <img src="http://www.javabeat.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/dummy_image2-300x300.jpg" alt="my_image1" height="150" width="200" class="img-responsive">
   <img src="http://www.javabeat.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/dummy_image1-300x210.jpg" alt="my_image2" height="200" width="200" class="img-responsive">
</div>
</body>
</html>

The .img-responsive class defines images must be displayed as block level elements, height of the image and width of the image to 100% which scales much better to parent element and it restrict the image according to the devices on which it is being rendered. The margin-bottom property sets the bottom margin of an element on the web page.
