check to ensure you're using links relative to the document rather then the site root. You may be linking your pictures to "C:\website\images\pic.jpg" rather than "\images\pic.jpg"

If this is the case, when the site is uploaded it won't function properly. You'll want to set up your links to be relative to the document through the "Site Management" dialog box.

yea there relative to document, the site root folder is my website folder and the images are the folder within the site folder, its only 2 images for now but i dont see why everything else wouldnt load, for example my page is centered and thats not working i also have divs i made using css and those dont work, this is a little confusing for me sorry im a newbie

If you cannot upload your site with dreamweaver then you can use filezilla or coreftp. Filezilla is good to upload file on server quickly.

There are a ton of good and free ftp programs out there. Just check out majorgeeks and I'm sure you will find a few there too.
