No images?

kaliannah Hi there.   I just registered the software and am having a problem.  None of my images are showing up when I compile the ebook, even thought they're all in the same folder.  I clicked on the "help" link in the ebook but received a page not found error.  

Any suggestions on why my images aren't showing up and how I can fix this? Thanks!

KC Are you using 'img src="image.jpg" ? Sounds like it's looking in the wrong place for them.

kaliannah Yes, I'm using the correct image codes.  It worked fine using another compiler, just not showing up when I generate the ebook with Activ.  Thanks!

KC Not sure what to suggest - maybe Sunil can shed some light. If the images are in the right folder and linked properly when you compile there shouldn't be a problem. I've compiled a few Ebooks with AEC and I've never had such a problem.

Perhaps the installation is corrupted.

EBookCompiler Two usual reasons:

1. Is the image in the same folder as the HTML
Check in Windows Explorer or the Files tab of the compiler

2. is the link code correct for the images?
code like KC said

kaliannah Just so I have this straight, the images *cannot* be in a separate folder inside the 'source' folder where the .html files are at?

EBookCompiler Yes that is a limitation of the current version.

We hope to fix this in future

If it helps, email me and I can mail you a DOS utility which will flatten a directory structure and fix most/all the links. You can use this on a copy of your work.

kaliannah Thank you for your offer to send a DOS utility, but it would probably just confuse me  LOL.  I moved my images into the same folder and it worked perfectly.
