Sent Html ...the pictures dissappeared

lokidesign i have been writing a how to book for a few months now(not money making) and have just started to look into the whole ebook compiling thing...I saved my word (including some pics created in paint)2000 file as a html file, then emailed it to someone...for some reason the pictures were missing from the file...I know this probably sounds relly stupid, but i thought i could just write the book then email it ot anyone who wanted it as html...i am completely new to all this, but why does the book have to be compiled? why can'ti just email it as it is etc.the book i am writing will not have hyperlinks, no resale etc...any emails would be really welcome.

EBookCompiler You need to compile it.

What compiling does, is it puts all the HTML files, graphics, etc., together as one file.  Otherwise you have a disconnected bunch of files that can't easily be sent in one go (otherwise files easily get lost - probably your picture files got lost, hence missing images on recipients' computer).  BTW it's better to send people a link to download the compiled ebook, rather than the ebook itself.  To compile it, you could try our programhttp://www.ebookcompiler.com/

lokidesign thanks for your response, i have just discovered a save as option called ''web archive'' which allowed me to send the whole file including the pictures...don't get me wrong i am not adverse to spending money on compilers or whatever i need to get the job done..it's just that i see other ways of doing things and can't clearly see the benefits of doing it one way or another...i am new to all this so really appreciate any input...i can see the benefit of using compilers etc for the type of book that involves *** or affiliates or whatever and in time would definately get into that...it's just that the project i am working on now just involves me sending some files to another set of people...evry bit of info i get seems to confuse me and put me off rather than let me ease into the whole thing...
