    Can't get image to set as background

    The following is what I have tried to do to set an image I have in Yahoo photos as a background:

    <BODY BACKGROUND="http://photos.yahoo.com/bc/tjhksig/vwp?.dir=/Work&.dnm=Shoes.jpg&.src=ph&.view=t"><img src="http://us.f1.yahoofs.com/users/5f059a37/bc/Work/__hr_Shoes.jpg?bcCC0L9ARO5HTR_N" alt="Shoes.jpg">

    It just comes up as a pic, but not as a background. What am I doing wrong here?

    linking directly to the yahoo omage will not work, you must upload the image to your own server.

    once this is done just use the body background ="blah.jpg" do not use the body background tag and the img src tag together.

    Ok, that presents a problem b/c I am trying to construct an email newsletter, and we are sending it through a third party, and I cannot upload images onto their server. Is there another way to get the image to work? Like I said, I can get the image to show up, but cannot get it to be a background.

    Thanks,

    TJH

    The only reason you can see it is because you are logged into the yahoo service. If I put the url into the browser I get a message that I must log in, you are the only one that would see it.

    No, I've sent out test e-mails and my recipients can see the image just fine, but alas I cannot get that sucker to be a background. So I guess what I'm asking is what would make the image show up, but NOT be a background like it is supposed to be?

    Thanks
