Can I put the image in a separate folder and code file in the separate folder?

Yes, you can but you need to put the absolute path.

What is the absolute path?

An absolute path is a full path indicating that where is the file located.

For example


  • your image name is 1
  • Your image type is jpg
  • Your image is in folder (images)

Then we can put the code as follows:  <img src=”images/1.jpg” />

  • <a href=”folder1/folder2/b.html”>Click here</a>
  • <a href=”../b.html”>Click here</a>
  • <a href=”../../b.html”>Click here</a>
