image not appearing in browser using dreamweaver

Hey there,

I'm trying to add images to my website using dreamweaver CS3 which is apparently supposed to be easy The image shows up on dreamweaver, but in safari as a blue question mark and as a blank space in netscape.

I read over this post http://forums.macrumors.com/showthre...ge+dreamweaver and moved my image file so that the code looks like what was suggested here. But still no luck!

Here is the site:
http://www.mahabellydance.com/

here is the code for the image that is not showing up:
<img src="images/hadiaweb.jpg" alt="hadia" width="200" height="533" align="right" />

Any suggestions....I'm new at this
Thanks!

Your html code is correct. The reason the image isn't showing on your site is because you haven't uploaded it:
http://www.mahabellydance.com/images/hadiaweb.jpg

It's not in your website's /images folder. The image you're seeing in Dreamweaver is the locally stored image(on your mac). You need to upload it through ftp onto your website's server.

You're going to have to give some detail. Show us at least the source code or a link to a site.

Sorry about that
Here is the code showing in the window

<img src="/design/about_web/images/about1.gif" width="183" height="370" />

When I opened up DW again today and tried it again, I got a message when I went to preview in browser. It said I had to got to DW preferences, click on Preview in Browser and check the box for "preview using temporary file". I did and it appeared in File - Preview in browser but when I uploaded it, the file wasn't there.

the path to your image is actually
http://www.cjmcreative.com/design/de...ges/about1.gif

so instead of <img src="/design/about_web/images/about1.gif" width="183" height="370" />
change it to
<img src="/design/design/about_web/images/about1.gif" width="183" height="370" />

Help! Images not working!

Hi,

As a warning, I'm still pretty new at dreamweaver and teaching myself. I'm creating a website using dreamweaver cs4, but none of my images are appearing on the internet. When i open up the page in Firefox, the images appear after I log in (a message appears saying "authentification required") In internet explorer, though, nothing (just x's)

I've checked a million times that the Source is correct - I've sourced it to the images file on the my ftp server. What am I doing wrong?!

the website is www.associationguideforgoingglobal.com

Thank you!!!

Your image paths are wrong your tags say src="/assnguideforgoingglobal_dw/images/bg-masthead.jpg" when it should just be src="/images/bg-masthead.jpg"

What's with the unnecessary login request? is there an .htaccess file in that directory or what?

I uploaded an image that showed a filename on a website successfully. But, I do not see a picture on the website. I have a Dreamweaver CS5.

I realized that I need to add a few codes for the image to show on the website. What should I write?

<p><b>What files are you sending?</b>
<p>

<div id="picture-container" class="fieldf-100">
<label for="picture">
File:
</label>
<input name="picture" id="picture" type="file">
<img src="" alt="original image" width="355" height="480"></p>
</div>

thumbnails not appearing

Hello,

I am struggling with the thumbnails in my website. Some of the projects show the thumbnail and some show a blue square with a question mark inside. I am using Dreamweaver CS4 to edit.

Here is an example of one that doesn't work properly:
http://yoshiharamckee.com/PROJECTS/cultural/sofia.html

Here is one that does:
http://yoshiharamckee.com/PROJECTS/c.../lasvegas.html

Thanks

it's about the small dots in the middle of thumbnails.

For the page that works, they are located at:
http://yoshiharamckee.com/PROJECTS/c...asvegas/1t.jpg
http://yoshiharamckee.com/PROJECTS/c...asvegas/2t.jpg
etc.

The blue square with a question mark (on Mac) means the picture was not found, in this case the missing pictures should be located at:
http://yoshiharamckee.com/PROJECTS/c...l/sofia/1t.jpg
http://yoshiharamckee.com/PROJECTS/c...l/sofia/2t.jpg
etc.

As a side note and best practice, in this case you should use the same "dot" picture everywhere, don't use 1000 identical pictures with different names.

Good luck!
