    I want to put some graphics in my frontpage.

    Do you have to load the graphics to your database which comes with your hosting company or just place a link to the graphics into the HTML?

    Thanks

    You must first save the picture to your computer. Then:
    Insert > Picture > From File
    Then find your file.

    You need to upload the graphics to your web space, the same place where your html pages are stored. You may wish to store graphics/iamges in a seperate sub folders.

    IN THE HTML
    <img src="yourImageFolder/graphic.gif" />

    You change the path according to where and what you've saved it as.

    As Trico says you need to get your head around the whole way the web is structured... your own c:\ drive isn't going to be accessible to folks on the web; even if you're hosting your own site (and as you said "hosting company" I assume you are not) the c:\ syntax will refer to their drives when they visit your site not yours, so it's never going to work !

    So, yes, your images need to be on your host's server... and then you link either relative (./images/filename) or absolute (/images/filename) from each of your pages. I quite favour absolute positioning since it allows you to move pages around (ie. restructure your site) without altering the code.
