What is your path to the images? Are you using relative paths or absolute paths?

Relative: html <img src="img/whatever.bmp" alt=""></img>

Absolute (Windows example): html <img src="C:/Users/project/img/whatever.bmp" alt=""></img>

First method (relative paths) is generally preferred and easier, but has to be absolutely correct (and filename with extension has to be 100% exact) or it won't work.

If it's not the above, slight chance it's also a user permissions issue.
