This is a problem with inserting images on a page in a website I'm building. The problem is that the image doesn't show on the page in either Explorer 7 or Firefox. I copied the image from the internet. I also tried an image of myself that I took from my cell phone, but it didn't show either. However, and strangely I copied a url image from a online tutorial and it showed on the page:
What did I do wrong with the other images? Here is the source code to the page:
My practice website

Welcome to my website

This is basically a personal website build to showcase my fledging talent in webdesign to put up pictures of my family and friends. I also like poetry, so there will be some poems.


This is a link to a good html tutorial

This is another great tutorial link

A tutorial for styles link


The code to some of the images don't show up here in the submitted form. Here is the code the one of the images:
[img src="My practice website/My website/images/high yellow.jpg" width="192" height="256" /]
Can anybody help. Thank you.

    I tried to clean up your question, but the {code} function doesn't work at all in many cases.   However, the code for many of your images doesn't have much of a chance. This "My practice website/My website/my new pic.jpg" isn't a valid URL. There are at least a couple things that might make it valid.   First, study the HTML "<base>" tag. You didn't include enough source to show whether you're using it or not.   If that fixes the problem, you're done. If it doesn't, we'll need more info before making better guesses. I'm not sure of a good way for you to show us more source, though. I'd possibly try changing all left- and right-angles brackets to left- and right-square brackets before pasting here so this editor doesn't get confused.   Tom

    An absolute URL - points to another web site (like src="http://www.example.com/image.gif") A relative URL - points to a file within a web site (like src="image.gif") src="My practice website/My website/images/high yellow.jpg" appears to be a relative address meaning the webpage is looking for this directory structure BENEATH the location of the directory the page is at.

    With a relative URL, you may be able to use as many double periods (..\...\..\) and slashes as needed to move back one directory each from the current directory as needed to locate the file.  C:\my documents\webstuff\duncanidaho\duncandreams\htmlcodeC:\my documents\webstuff\images\duncanimagesWith HTML residing at the htmlcode level, and your images residing at duncanimages, you may need to redirect downward as:[img src="../../images/duncanimages/high yellow.jpg" width="192" height="256" /]Another issue may be the spaces placed in your directory names.  Try renaming your [entire world] directories My_practice_website/My_website/images/Another hitch is caps versus lower case.  Ensure your web server is configured case insensitive OR make sure you match case _verbatim_ between your URL and your file structure.
