I have started to make a web page with html tags and notepad. I want to know if I can add a picture that i have saved on my harddrive and if I can vew the picture on the page befor I publish it? Thanks for any help.
What I have gotten into the habit of doing is to create the html file with notepad with all the needed image files or whatever located in a FOLDER in My Documents.
All pictures or whatever is going to be called up by the html file is included in the same folder or directory.
Folder on computer,directory on website.
When satisfied with the results,I open the webshell at Angelfire,where I have my site, & I upload the entire folder to a directory of its own.
Using the file name with notepad in the html file with the picture or whatever is ok.
It works if the entire folder is uploaded to a directory on you website server.
As you may know,an html file needs all added things like pictures,etc., added to the same directory as the html file itself.
It saves you from having to use the entire WEBSITE url of added images & things.
<img src="dog.jpg"> instead of <img src="god_knows_how_long_a _ server_url_will_be_/dog.jpg>
If you have mydog.html & a picture called rex.jpg is included in the folder uploaded or directory on your server the picture will work.
I hope that makes sense.
I'm so used to doing things like this that sometimes it is hard to explain things that are simple to me to someone else.
I am always available for extended help if what I write here is questionable.
