    Can't See Images I insert?

    footballmom813@yahoo.com
      When I go to "insert an image" I can not seem to find it. Or sometimes they will go to the far left top and I can't move them. Please help. How can I tell it WHERE to insert the image?

          Simple. You can't. That's not how web pages (HTML) work. Building a web page
          is not like creating an image in Photoshop. There is a natural flow to a web
          page, left to right, top to bottom. If you want to effectively control the
          placement of objects (images, blocks of text, etc.) your best bet is to
          learn HTML & CSS and hw the 2 work together. Any other approach is unlikely
          to produce worthwhile websites.

          If you're up for that just say so and you'll get lots of suggestions and
          direction here. It's not easy, assuming you want to produce quality sites,
          but it can be very satisfying.

            AP div could probably do what you want but it all depends on your layout
            and the number of images you want to "place". But never build a page
            that relies on AP divs. That will cause you a lot of problems.

              Listen to Kim. I've had to redo sites that I thought looked good. Every element of my sites were nicely placed in AP tags. Everything will be peachy until a surfer comes along with a changed browser setting or two, and suddenly your masthead tag is covering up half of three of your photos, and there is no telling where your address begins and your bio ends. Those surfers with tweaked settings are valuable, and you don't want them thinking poorly of your site.

              As far as inserting pictures; pretty much just place it the same way that you would place a word in a sentence. If you want the picture <img src="pic.png" alt="my boys" /> to come after the phrase "Here are my boys:", and before the phrase "I swear they don't always act this way!" then you might type the following:
              <p>Here are my boys:<br />
              <img src="pic.png" alt="my boys" /><br />
              I swear they don't always act this way!</p>
              The hard returns or new lines are not necessary, of course. This will do the same thing:
              <p>Here are my boys:<br /><img src="pic.png" alt="my boys" /><br />I swear they don't always act this way!</p>
              I hope this is not so basic that it is insulting. I'm just hoping to help.
