Need Graphic Image HTML Code
(Sioux City, Iowa )
I need help with getting my graphics to show up on my website. I need the correct graphic image HTML code so my graphics load and show-up correctly.
I don't know how to script them right or how to use the image HTML code so when the website opens my photos will be displayed instead of just blank boxes with the image of an icon and a little red X that looks like torn paper.Hi Megan,
I hate that too!
It's very frustrating some times learning the things that seem like they should be so easy. (But aren't until you learn them.)
I don't know which web site hosting service you use but have you loaded up your pictures to your web host first? Your image file needs to be hosted on the server that your website is hosted on or it won't display.
That could be one possible problem.
If you have your graphics uploaded to your web host, then check your image HTML code to make sure that you have used it correctly.
Here's and example of what it should look like:
/NAME-OF-GRAPHIC.jpg" align="left" width="110" height="135" alt="keyword name of graphic here"
(Remember to start the HTML tag with < before "img" and close it with > after the last quote mark like every HTML tag.)
You will have to learn what term your host uses for the image file designation. Usually it is either "image-files" if you upload your own HTML web page or if using a template than the name could be "images".
Another tip to help you is to view the source code for other website hosted with your company to see what the URL looks like for their graphics.
Hope this helps,
