Hi, I want to embed my images so they will view when I post out to numerous clients. I uploaded the images to our ftp connection and then I have created absolute links to this folder, please see example below.

Ok I can't paste the http even after using the wrap html tags so you will see in my code below where it states <a href="the web name">< The web address is in there and then for <img src="web address/.... This is the absolute link to the FTP folder. If you can figure out the below, is there another step I am missing please?

<td width="600" height="3079" align="center" valign="top" bordercolor="#FFFFFF" bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><a href="the web name"><img src="web address/HeadLiteratureUpdates_Belg.gif" width="648" height="186" alt="headBelg" />

It may be that your using camel case naming convention

Try lower case and make sure that the file name is the same as your reference

Hi David,
I made all my names lower case and made sure file name was the same as reference, still isn't working,just grey box instead? Could it be my view on my computer perhaps?

<td width="600" height="3079" align="center" valign="top" bordercolor="#FFFFFF" bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><a href="the web name"><img src="ftpfolderlinktofile/headliteratureupdates_belg.gif" width="648" height="186" alt="head" />

In your examples here I see that you don't close the anchor tags with </a>. Did you close them in your html emal?
