Default First time using images - 02-21-2012, 04:59 PM

Hi, i have had a search on the forum and can't find what i am looking for. I know it is probably an annoying question and simple but am hoping for some help. I have manage to upload my website and getting the text showing on my domain but no images. I have read a few posts but none have been straight forward enough.

How do i get images to show on my page?? and what do i do?

many thanks

Sam

So you start an image with <img
Then, you have to tell the tag where your image is with src="example.png"
And then, you end your tag. />
So it should look like <img src="example.png"/>
And you can do a lot of things with images, check out the site lobrc posted.

back again already, i don't quite understand. I have downloaded a serif free version for designing my website, which obviously lets you input images easily. Once converted and uploaded via my ftp the images are not there. I am just having trouble understanding what is happening to them and why? sorry to be a pain

With Serif Free, does it connect via FTP? or are all the files local?

Hi,
You should upload the files (HTML and images) within the public_html folder (or inside any folder in public_html).
To call your web page, for example, yourpage.html, if this file is inside your public_html folder you can call it that:
http://yourdomain.com/yourpage.html

If you want to display an image (yourimagen.png) from your yourpage.html file, save yourpage.html and yourimagen.png files within the public_html folder, then HTML code that you should write in your yourpage.html file is as follows:
HTML Code:
<img src="yourimage.png" alt="alternative text" width="100%" height="100%" />
