Images and Lists

Hello, I'm a beginner in programming and I'm getting introduced to HTML. I know the language in my text editor is spot on, because I've passed the challenge task. However, if I put my index.html file onto the browser, the image doesn't show up! In safari the image shows up as a blue question mark and a folded picture of a green mountain on google chrome. Please help me out, this is very frustrating.

Well the problem is the source of the image, for example:

<img src="photo.jpg" />

If you get this tag inside the file index.html and you also need to have photo.jpg in the same directory as index.html and other case if there is something like

<img src="pictures/car.jpg">

You must have the image car.jpg inside a folder pictures in the same folder as index.html.

Thank you so much! Helped me a ton!
