    ok, i have virtual pc 6. which i currently use for my dreamweaver mx software.

    on my mac itself i have made a website using photoshop and imageready.

    now, i used my usb mem. stick to save the .html .psd and images folder(WEB PAGE).

    WHEN I OPENED UP MY .HTML IMAGEREADY WEBPAGE IN DREAMWEAVER (ON MY VIRTUAL PC) THE PAGE OPENS WITH ALL THE PICS TORN UP AND NO IMAGES. ONLY THE BACKGROUND COLOUR IS DISPLAYED. PLEASE HELP.

    (IF I AM CONVERTING IT WRONG, PLEASE GIVE ME REALLY EASY STEPS ON HOW TO CONVERT)

    Are the images in the right folder? I always make another folder called "img" to contain the images, and another called "resources" containing CuteNews (if its in the design)?

    The image references in your html file are likely messed up. You'll have to go into the html file and edit the location for each image to point to the proper location. Typically the easiest way is to use relative links. If you have your html and images all in one folder, then simply have something like...
    Code:
    <img src="somepic.jpg">
    instead of
    Code:
    <img src="file://Users/You/SomeFolder/somepic.jpg">
    This is will allow your pages to display properly pretty much anywhere.

    I'm not familiar with either ImageReady or Dreamweaver, but you'll need to edit the location of the image in the HTML file. I'm guessing it's currently pointing at where the image is on your Mac, which isn't of much use. Without specifics, it's hard to say more...

    Edit: If you're able, copy and paste the contents of the HTML file in a post so we can see the code.

    ok well from dream weaver you can drag and drop the image on to the page. it should pop right on up.

    as long as your folders are in order from the main folder all the links should work. but if you ever move the image to a different location it will break.

    lets say your making a web site and you have it in a folder called web

    web > index.html file and a img folder

    img > 1.jpg

    as long as all these stay in the sam location. drag the picture in to the dreamweaver page. which should be the index.html file should make the image reapear.

    dreamweaver is very drag and drop friendly. but sometimes need alot of cleaning up after you finish

    treid that seems fine

    OK the src. locations are routed to the images that i have in the folder. so they are fine.

    i have and image file, with the .html inside it and .psd file.
    that all seems fine, i did convert the image with a data stick onto me virt.pc
    could that be a problem.

    thanx again u lot ur gold

    do you see nothing but html code? i think you are in code view if you do. if not it should be just drag and drop. when i get to work tomorrow i can double check. but thats how i use to insert images into my sites.
