I placed an image from the image folder to my CSS /html web page, and  I uploaded the image into the" images" folder and uploaded the css file into the "css folder" and then upload the html.

 and no image was shown:
part of my css:
#content div#section div p {
	line-height: 21px;
	margin: 0;
	padding: 15px 0 0;
	text-align: justify;
	text-shadow: 1px 1px 0 #f4dcb6;
	width: auto;
	background-image: url(images/pinkRibbon1.jpg);
	background-repeat: no-repeat;
	background-position: center;

part of my HTML file
	<div id="content">
		<div id="section">
				<h1>Dr. Tracy Laufer </h1>
				<p>Low back pain and neck pain have become two  major health problems of the modern era. Unfortunately, many people suffer from chronic back or neck pain that does not get better despite excellent traditional medical and surgical care. As many as 90 percent of people report at least one episode of back pain during their working lives, and back pain is a major cause of disability in the aging population. In many cases, back pain arises when stress is placed on the muscles and ligaments that support the spine.<br/>

CSS reads images relative to itself. so if your structure is like this:


you will need:

background-image: url(../images/pinkRibbon1.jpg);

The path to the image cannot be resolved because the path is not complete enough.

try changing it to ../images/pinkRibbon1.jpg

If that does not resolve it we will need to know what your file system structure looks like.

not sure. It's been many years since I used Dreamweaver. That's really a separate question.

Answer to the path question in Dreamweaver.

If you set up a "Site" for your project in Dreamweaver and run it through a web server (local or remote) for testing, all urls added using the automated method will have the proper relative urls including however many "../" are needed to resolve the path from the current file.

When you do not have a "Site" setup, the urls will be absolute paths to the files on your hard drive.
