Are you on an Linux System?

Try to change the permission with "chmod 755 picname"

The immediate solution is to remove the "ftp" part as it's not needed.

So your code will become:
<a href="graphic.gif">Click here to download graphic.gif</a>

However, this will open the image in the browser... not what you wanted...

There are now two solutions...
1) as morbiusx suggested make it into a zip file with the image inside... this will not open in the browser and will start a dialogue box that says "save file as..." and allow the user to save the file anywhere on his machine. The code will become...
<a href="graphic.zip">Click here to download a zip file containing graphic.gif</a>

2) The other option is to inform that user that he/she will have to right click (or command-click for Mac) and select "save target as...".
making your code look like this.
<a href="graphic.gif">Right click here (or command click for Mac) and select "save file as..." to download graphic.gif</a>

Seems a little messy I know.

Hope this helps...
