    Real newbie question

    I am just starting to build a website using FrontPage and have added a photo to my index.htm file. After uploading the page to the server the home page just displays a rectangle with a red X in the top left corner. There must be some really obvious reason for this because I see it on professional websites sometimes. Please clue me in.

    Make sure the <img> tag points to the correct location for the image.

    I'll put my money on it pointing to your hardrive

    Presumably I have to upload the graphics file to the server but that operation fails. Could it be because it is too big, or is it something else that I just don't know about.

    Could be any number of things from connection timing out or maybe the img is too big like you suggest. May be best to contact your host or ISP.

    Just a shot in the dark but have you checked your ftp programme is set to binary mode and not ASCII ?
