          What kind of image are you trying to insert?

           

          Have you tried any troubleshooting steps as of yet (restarting program/computer, clearing cache, etc)?

           

          What is the exact pop up message?

            image is jpg

            pop-up box saids you won't se this element unless you view >invisible elements is checked, and the preferences settings for this element is on

            i don't know how to clear cache

              That's very odd, a .jpeg isn't an invisible element in DW, nor ar there any settings to make it invisible as I'm sure you've noticed.

               

              What are the exact steps you are taking to insert it?

               

              Where in the page are you trying to insert it? (pasting the code here in the forum may provide a clue)

               

              Maybe DW thinks you're trying to add something else, or you're adding it to the wrong location and it's getting confused.

                Are you attempting to insert an image inside an APDiv?

                 

                Try moving your cursor in Code view to a better insertion point inside your <body> tag.

                 

                     <img src="your_image.jpg">

                      That's not a valid HTML document.  What application are you using?

                              I surprised one even works at all. DW works best with valid documents. Yours is not even close. You have no body tags. Start with a new valid document and I'm sure it will work.

                                bregent is absolutely right here. You are missing most of your document's required structural tags.

                                 

                                You are basically attempting to insert an image into your <head> section, which in and of itself is an invisible item to DW. The <head></head> section is for javascripts, css, page title, links to external scripts/files, meta information and a few other, very specific items.

                                 

                                Have a look at the tutorials here: http://w3schools.com/html and http://www.w3schools.com/css they should give you a good understanding of what's wrong with your page as it sits now.

                                  This makes absolutely no sense.  It doesn't even look like a Dreamweaver document.
