I am using Net. Nav. Gold 3.0 in Win.95 with an internal
HTML editor. I do a'Save As' my_img.gif on my down load,
for the picture I want to insert on my web page, but when
I click on Insert Image all I get is a small icon and no
image.Could it be that in my Editor Preferences under
"General" I have not filled it in correctly? Under Author,
which is doing a prompt is my name. (is this correct)
HTML Source is blank.
Image C:\image.gif
Location http://home.netscape.com/home/gold3.0_template.html

I don' t really understand your question : could you clarify it for me, please ?

What should be in your HTML file to display an image resembles the following code :
     <IMG SRC=my_image.gif>
You can verify it by editing a new file with any text editor and inserting this source code in it (replacing my_image with your filename), saving the file and opening it in Netscape.
Pay attention, though, the GIF file must be in the same directory as the HTML file !

Okay,

Editor Preferences for Netscape

Author name - Your_Name (You are the one doing the Editing)

The following are the programs you wish to use for editing HTML source code or Images assuming you do not wish to use Netscapes built in editors.

HTML Source - Program.EXE of HTML Editor

Image - Program.EXE of Image Editor NOT of an Image File.

Location - (This is simply the web address of a set of templates which Netscape provide to get you started in the HTML (Web Page) production.


To actually insert the image you have saved into a HTML document you will need to actually produce a HTML file which you can do in any text editor (like Notepad, but save with .htm extension instead of .txt) or you can use a specific HTML editor like the editor with Netscape.

To use the editor in netscape follow these commands:-

1) FILE

2) NEW DOCUMENT

3) either BLANK or FROM TEMPLATE or FROM WIZARD

If you select BLANK then select

1) INSERT

2) IMAGE

3) IMAGE FILE NAME [BROWSE]

4) Choose Image to display and click OK

when you have done this then choose FILE SAVE AS and choose a filename.

You will now be able to load your new HTML document into your Netscape Browser by going back to the browser and selecting FILE

OPEN FILE IN BROWSER

Hope this helps

To Terminius, the <IMG SRC="######.gif"> tag does not have to be in the same directory as the HTML file, you could even reference an image from another HTML file if needed, like this, <IMG SRC="http://www.imagesrc.web/imagedir/image.gif".  To help rdgunnin with his question, do a right click on the image icon, a error message should pop up that reads, "image source not found...", if this is the case, then you do not have your image properly sourced.
