This will prevent to browse the file that is not an image.

If you are using input[type="file"] HTML element then you may require to accept specific files like image/video. The code snippet can be used to browse only image files in your website. If you want to accept all files you can use accept="image/*" or if have specific extensions of image files that can only be accepted, you can use accept="image/jpeg,image/gif,image/x-png"
