Hey guys
Been awhile since I have weaved anything. Just a bit rusty. When I go to test my page in a browser, all my files dont show up "file not found". Do I have to have a server in order to test what I have put together? I am overlooking a simple task. I just want to see the images display on a browser. Am I overlooking a setting?
Thank you...

If it is a static html file, no you don't need a server.
If it is a php/asp/etc page, then yes you need a server to see it.

In Dreamweaver make sure you have set up a site definition for your pages.
Then save your page, then "test page in browser".

Looks like a path issue, but I keep staring at it, it appears correct.
Is there a relative/absolute preference or something?
The index.htm is in the root folder.
image1.jpg is in the /images folder.
The image will not display in browser when testing.

Show us the page code.
Another set of eyes may spot something amiss.

When you select an image file that you are using you can right click to get a dialog box. In that box select the image file and select relative to document.
That worked for me.
Thank you for the feedback guys....I'll be back.
