Yep, if you look at the code of an html file in a text editor, you'll see 
"img" tags that tell the browser to load images from other files and display 
them where the tag is.  It might look like:

  <img src="photos/photo1.jpg" width="300" height="200" (other attributes like 
a description etc.) />

The "src" attribute here tells your browser how to find an image, *relative to 
the html file* unless the src is a complete url like this:

  <img src="http://www.mysite.org/photos/photo1.jpg"; (other attributes) />

So, in the first case, without absolute urls in the src attribute, you either 
need to copy the image files to the same relative position (a photos 
directory in the same directory as your html file), or you need to make the 
src attributes absolute so they always pull images from the same website, no 
matter where the actual html file is.

Hope you followed that :)
