In either case, the presumption is that there's a folder called images under the root of the web site.

Your image code <img border="0" src="/images/logo.jpeg" alt="greenerpc" width="304" height="228"> is calling for a file called log.jpeg inside the folder called images that is the top level folder on your site.

If you site is  Then the top level folder called images will be    and the file we are looking for is logo.jpeg so putting it all together   If you can type that in your browser (changing to your own site) and see the image, you are good.  If you can't, then your image is not where you think it is.    

You can log into your server or use ftp and look for a folder called images and in that folder a file called logo.jpeg.      Note that an image file can be jpeg, jpg (same file type as jpeg), .gif, .png.   Make sure everything is spelled correctly too.  Many times jpg and jpeg get substituted.

In short, make sure the file you are calling is on the server.

I found a mistake, but apparently not the only one.  My logo was in pictures and not images.  i still cant search and find it in my browser, though.  Could it be that i am using notepad++?

I see your problem.  I looked at your screenshot you uploaded.  Your local html file is in c:/users/nate/documents/ folder.   This would mean to see your image, you would have to have a folder called images in your c drive like c:/images.  That is not practical.  

You can change your code to
<img border="0" src="images/logo.jpeg" alt="greenerpc" width="304" height="228">

Open in new window

and that may work locally depending on where your images folder is.

You may want to read up on absolute and  relative paths

You should probably use localhost to test your sites.  I am not a windows person, but I think you have to install iis first

This will allow you to access your local files like http://localhost/mypage.html just as you do your site.

One of our Experts Karzkiss has a good video on this with one exception. He talks about turning on parent paths.  Leave that that off in production and testing.  I think this talks about asp pages, but it is good for html as well

<img border="0" src="/images/logo.jpeg" alt="greenerpc" width="304" height="228"> , but my out come is still the same. i still cant wrap my head around this

Going back to  your file location.  Your html file is in c:/users/nate/documents/

Your image is accessing /images/logo.jpeg.    By using the slash in front, you are telling the browser to look for the image logo.jpeg in c:/images/ folder.    

IF your folder structure is like this

  |- users
              |- nate

Then try taking out the slash

<img border="0" src="images/logo.jpeg" alt="greenerpc" width="304" height="228">
