A big problem many people have is getting the correct source path, whether it be an absolute link path, or a relative link path. I try to use the relative link path as often as possible.

If you html file is just outside your img folder, with your image inside that, you could have a relative link path that might look like

<img src="img/logo.gif">

An absolute path on your computer might look like:

<img src="C:\Users\myuser\Desktop\img\logo.gif">

as an example of a PC desktop. This is very specific to your machine and folder structure, so it's more prone to break the image path.

you can do that by this code

<img src="img/logo.gif" alt="My Website Logo"/>

Thank you very much people!
