    when you designed the page you referenced images in a specific set of directories, which should have been a subdirectory of where your main page is
    the images need to be in the same directories as reference in the main page

    Ok, let me make it easy for you to understand. to save some space in your file manager, make a folder for your images in your file manager, for example name the folder "images". Upload all your images to that folder. Incase you are to put an image link to your site, it would look like this, <img src=http://yourwebsite.com/images/yourpicture.jpg>

    Hope this helps.

    sorry about that

    the directories reference in your hjome page have to exist on the server
    often people will put images in an image folder

    the simplest form is no directory

    so
    your home.htm and yourpicture.jpg - willl be in the same place on the server
    therefore the references to the image will be
    <img src=yourpicture.jpg>

    now if you have put your images into a subfolder say called - mypicturefolder then the reference in the home.htm will be
    <img src=mypicturefolder/yourpicture.jpg>

    so what I was trying to explain is that any folders you used on your PC, when you designed the webpage would need to be reflected on the server when you upload the images.

    what editor for web did you use
    I have seen some give absolute address like
    c:/documents and settings/username/mydocuments/mywebs/mynewhomepage/images/mypicture.jpg

    which work work on the server

    if you attached or provided a link to your home page here we could see the reference and advise

    You image links are incorrect.
    For a small example, the actual image located at:
    http://www.raisinghavok.hostneo.com/slice_r3_c2.jpg is linked in your html as 12133/images/slice_r3_c2.jpg
    (makes that hyperlink look like this: http://www.raisinghavok.hostneo.com/12133/images/slice_r3_c2.jpg which obviously is incorrect.

    So, you have two choices;
    Remove the reference to 12133/images/ in the html on all images
    OR the preferred is to create the directory images, copy all images that are in your root folder into that and hange all pages image locations by removing the 12133 from infront of the images/ reference.

    As far as fixing, again two choices.
    You can open the document in Dreamweaver, Click edit > find and replace
    Type in 12133/images/ in the find field, images/ in the replace field and click replace all.
    Do that to each page.

    OR

    0pen the site, click site > check links sitewide > in the dropdown make sure that "Broken Links" is seleceted Doubleclick each link and it will load the page, repair the errors and save that page,then go to the next.
