    Smile Last resort: Please help with images on webpage!

    Hi all,

    I know this question has probably been asked and answered millions of times, but I am in dire straits and need help! I've taken on editing the webpage for a charity, and am using Dreamweaver. We can't afford to get anybody professional to do this, so I'm basically trying my hardest at something that is driving me up the wall. I am very inexperienced, and as far as I am aware have tried all of the obvious answers to this question.

    I have been having problems putting images on the webpage and them not showing up when I've published the page. I've ensured that the pictures are saved in the right place, ensured the path is correct, etc. An example of the page is here:

    http://www.clabiletrust.org/project3.htm

    Can anybody help me? I feel like I'm going out of my mind! Another thing is, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I have spent hours trying to figure this out on my own.

    Thanking anyone who can shed some light on this annoying subject!

    Just to clarify: when I say:

    sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn'tI mean, some images show up - others don't.

    On that particular page, there is an image that doesn't show up, as you say. The image is expected at the url: http://www.clabiletrust.org/clabilet...Cubsschool.JPG
    and as far as I can tell isn't actually there. You might check on your server to see where that file is, and make sure the name (with the various upper & lowercase letters) is exactly as specified in your html.

    Hi Rachel,

    Images are easy to test. They can be viewed in your browser in the same way as a web page. You just enter the URL of the image, and if the image can't be found it will tell you so.

    If an image isn't showing up, right-click where it should be and click Properties if you're using Internet Explorer. The URL of the image you are trying to display will be there. Copy + Paste that URL in a browser and see if the image shows up. If it doesn't, there is no image on the server at that location. If you're using Firefox, you can just right-click on the image and click View Image to go straight to it.

    For example, one of your missing images is:

    http://www.clabiletrust.org/clabilet...Cubsschool.JPG

    As Dave noted, there is no image at that location, which you can see for yourself if you follow that link.

    With a bit of investigation, it seems to me that there isn't even a folder at http://www.clabiletrust.org/clabiletrust/images, but you do have a folder at http://www.clabiletrust.org/images/. There is no image called CleverCubsschool.JPG in that folder though.

    Thanks for your responses. I can now see that the images are obviously saved in the wrong place. I now can't seem to find where I'm meant to be saving them. I thought I was saving it in the site root this whole time.

    How can you find out where to save the images in the right place?

    Rachel, there is no "correct place" to save your images. It's your web site and just like you might arrange your directory of files on your PC, you can arrange them to suit whatever organization you like on your web site. You could put them all in the root, you could put them in a folder called "images" or "pictures", etc. The only requirement is that the html you use to reference them must point at wherever you actually have them.
