Images not uploading

I'm an html newbie setting up a simple website.  The text and hypertext uploads correctly but the images won't.  I have tried inserting the images using Composer, and also using an html editor, and both work when I preview the page, but when I upload, all I get are the text alternates.  Do I have to separately upload every image file to the website or something? I'm using cute ftp to upload.

I am not familiar with cute ftp, but if you are not getting the images I would try uploading them individually to the server.  I have seen programs that will upload linked images and others you need to select everything in your offline files including the folders to get everything in the right place.

davlun20080 is right. CuteFTP just uploades the files you select. As the actual images are not included in your webpage but just a reference to them you'll have to upload all images/soundfiles/movies/whatever referenced in your webpage.

This problem might also be caused by Case Sensitivity.  If, for example, your HTML code refers to your image as "Something.jpg" (with a capital S), and the actual image filename is something.jpg (with a lowercase S), the image will not be shown if the site is hosted on a Linux server.  Linux is Case Sensitive...

Hey there!

All the answers above are correct, but there's another parameter you have to think of.

Images need to be transfered in binary mode.
CuteFtp (and most other Ftp-Clients) has the option to automate the upload process...  Try to check if you have turned that off.. (I can't remember excactly where...)
If that's the case, then the pictures wont show...
