I have an image that I want to include in the HTML for my web page. I would like to have the image stored on my computer NOT at a URL.

1. Where is the best place to store these JPG, GIf images?

2. I know the tag for inserting, but only when the images are stored on line.

3. Once stored on my computer, I need an example of what I would type in after: <img src= >

Can you tell I am new at this :tazz:

If you are going to provide a link from a Web Page to something stored on your PC, I hope you have your PC set up to run as a server (Apache?). Surely, you have enough storage space on your web site to put images? Put it (them) in a separate folder and label folder img, images, whatever you like. The "src=" will then be, for example, if the HTML document is in your root directory, src="img/imagename.gif".

Hope this is what you wanted.

Thank you for the reply, however what I want is when preparing my homepage with HTML in Notepad, to be uploaded to the site, I wanted to be able to use an image that I have on my personal computer when writing the HTML. Does that make sense?

Of course I have most in documents/pictures on the computer.

Thanks again.

You are going to have to upload the image into the same named folder you have it in on your PC. One way or the other, that image has to be on your site to be used in the html document.
