I was making a website on my computer but I needed to make a picture and when I put it on the website it put up that red x thing. I have tried this with two different computers for two different websites and neither worked. Oh and pictures downloaded from the internet work. Is there a different command other than <IMG SRC> to put on the pictures

I don't know of another command. check the path of the image.

this image is in the same folder as the source code
<img border="0" src="next_page.gif">

this image is in the folder named 'gif' . the gif folder is in the same folder as the source code
<img border="0" src="gif/next_page.gif">

this image is in the folder above the source code folder
<img border="0" src="../next_page.gif">

also, check the spelling of the image name

whenever you are coding, its a good practice to use the capitalization that you saved the image with, that also includes the extension.

for example;

you save the file as peapod.JPEG

when you go to put the code in you have to type it in as <img src="peapod.JPEG">

if you put it in as <img src="PeaPod.jpg"> or <img src="peapod.jpeg"> it won't work because there is no file named liked that.
