Why is there a red X where my image should be?

There are 2 main reasons this could be happening.

1. The image is not in the folder.

Have you uploaded the image onto our server? Make sure the image file has been uploaded into the appropriate folder within the public_html folder. When uploading images, make sure to do it in binary mode instead of ASCII mode.

Make sure the file is in the correct folder.

2. The path to the image is incorrect.

Right click on the image and click Properties. This will display the link to the image. If the path is correct, the image does not exist. If the path is incorrect, just change the linking.

Make sure there are no spaces or capitals in the file name. For example,

"My Image.jpg"

should be renamed to


Then make sure the the path to the image reflects this change.
