I am creating a page using the "Empty Page" template in the Projector skin. I want to use the image yoheader4.jpg which is located in my res folder (located at

(C:\Users\al\OneDrive\Documents\My Albums\My California\res) on my computer.

I can't find the proper path (Img src="?????") that will display the image.

Thanx

Thanks for your quick reply - This is the path I pasted, and it does not work.

<img src="${C:\Users\al\OneDrive\Documents\My%20Albums\My%20California\res}\yoheader4.jpg">

I added the "%20" to fill in the spaces. Is the \ correct or should they be / ?

And why didn't you try what I suggested? The Windows path doesn't work under Java.

Don't second guess this. Enter exactly what you see here. Copy and paste it. Don't replace any of the characters with something else:
<img src="${resPath}/yoheader4.jpg" alt="">

At this stage of the game, we have a lot of experience with users who overthink things. It seems to go with the territory.
