Uploading Images? Could use a hand

4 replies
First time putting up a site in a long time.

I've forgotten how to upload images.

So I've got my dreamweaver (something similar) open and I have added an image.

I've also uploaded that image to my file manager.

But the image is not showing up.

What step did I miss?

Thanks in advance you guys always rock.

Mike

    Right click on the image (that is not working) and see if you can get the path of the image like /images/image1.jpg. Then double check to see if you uploaded to the right place. Sometimes I use Filezilla for uploading as it is a little simpler to use than Dreamweaver.

    So what HTML code did you use for your image? Here's an example of the correct syntax:

    Code:
    <img src="http://www.mysite.com/images/sunset.gif" />
    Of course this assumes that you uploaded the image to a folder inside your root folder called "images". And don't forget that the web runs on UNIX, not on Windows - therefore capitalization matters. Your image won't show if you:
    * Misspell the image name
    * Use the wrong case in the image name
    * Make a file path mistake

    Hope this helps...

    The above sounds right. Check and make sure you uploaded the pictures to the right file directory folder. You also need to make sure you got your HTML code right.

    do you use FPT or cPanel for uploading your images ?

    cPanel is slower, but it always works for me
