When I insert a picture by <img> tag into a html code that I added into the site page and press F12, those images disappear.
But when I insert pictures with ribbon, I can see them.


When I load site page, href value become empty ( "" ).

<a href="pictureBig">
  <img alt="Title" src="pictureSmall"  />


When I normally just use <img> , they also become empty too.

<img alt="Title" src="pictureSmall"  />

After reload site page:

<img alt="Title" src=""  />

Why does it happen?
And I just want to know why this happens and how I can solve this. Thank you.

check your image path, check what's the path of the image when you are inserting through designer, and compare that with yours – Diptarag Nov 30 '12 at 6:51
Thank you for answering. It works now. The difference is ../. When I insert picture from SPD there is ../path but when I insert it by ribbon there is just path . – e.ozmen Nov 30 '12 at 6:57
glad to know it worked :) – Diptarag Nov 30 '12 at 7:11
The images still can't be viewed. I think they display temporarily. I can't find why it happens. Please help – e.ozmen Dec 4 '12 at 9:24
