You probably had a different relative path to the pics when they were on your PC. What you should have is a file called index.html in the main Geocities directory. Make a new directory in the main one, call it 'images' (or something similar), then put all your pics in that. Then edit index.html in the HTML editor so they are referenced as < img src="/images/something.jpg" > . You can add values for the height and width by adding height="10" or whatever before the > . Also add alt="some text" for alternative text. It should work then, unless that wasn't your problem and I've just wasted my time.
