looking at your code you are not specifying an image file in your code, but an html file

<img src="pic/me.html">

make sure you use the correct file extension for your image. if its a jpg try

<img src="pic/me.jpg">

make sure you saved the actual picture from google as an image file, and not just the webpage itself. to save the image itself you should be able to right click it and select "save image as" then select where to save it on your hard disk

sorry about that...i just pic an image from google
