Help! I don't know much about Dreamweaver or coding but I am working on an e-mail blast. The images show up in dreamweaver, and they also show up if I click on the .html on my computer. If I email the .html, the images show up as blue question marks. How do I fix this? I have read not to link picture from folders on your computer, but I'm confused on how else I would do it?! Thanks!

You need to upload pictures to a public facing web server such as your web site.

Then use absolute links to the images on your server -- i.e. https://yourdomain.com

<img src="https://yourdomain.com/image/image1.jpg" alt="description for image rejecting email clients">

You need to host your images somewhere online, and reference those hosted images. When you attempt to send an html email that references local images, only you would be able to see them because only you have them in the locations on your computer being referenced in your html.

Personally, I will use an email folder on my client's site to store all of the files an eblast through constantcontact.com uses.
