Hi I created a picturemap in dreamweaver - I can view it fine in dreamweaver - but when I go to paste it into my newsletter creater on my website - making sure I am in the HTML Source Editor option, I go to preview it and all I get is little red cross and just boxes where Ive put the links all plain white ... not my newsletter!

Now I can't work out if its my HTML or its my website?

below is my HTML - what am I doing wrong?

You have the image path wrong. You have it looking for it on your pc.
You need to have it calling for the image from your host.

Thanks for the reply, if I host the picture on a free hosting site ie image shack, photobuck ect it will work?

I am a total n00b and just trying to get by, learning bit by bit, I will try this monday morning - thanks for your help :)

You need a website host to host your website files.
This is also where you out your images.
