HTML is for web pages like this one.  Unless your desktop is a web page, I don't how you would do that.  Even then it has to be hosted somewhere.  Do you have a local web host or Sharepoint server?

The Active Desktop (loading html pages) has been removed since Windows Vista.
There are third-party tools like

I think you mean your computer when said "from my Desktop"
how do you attend to share this html file?
to view by all computers you should place the image in a shared folder with read rights to everyone
and put full network path like this <img id="mypict" src="\\computer\sharename\imagename.jpg">  
or you make the source on the internet if those computers have internet access,
also there is a way to use DATA in html to embed the image with the HTML, but you need serialized string of the image

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

So you mean you trying to insert an image stored in a desktop to a HTML file? In that case the Image should be hosted in the web or else you can use tinypic.com to upload and get an URL for the image and use it in HTML page. The image will be displayed wherever you open that HTML page and it should connected to the internet.
