define "here". On StackOverflow? On your website? Sounds like you are too new for stack. – mrtsherman Feb 18 '11 at 4:47
"Here" as in "on Stackoverflow"? Well, we have no access to your computer, so we can't see images on your harddisk. You need to upload it to some public server so we can see it. Stackoverflow does this for you if you use the "Image" button. – deceze Feb 18 '11 at 4:47
the src is wrong it should be or something less weird. – Robin Feb 18 '11 at 4:52
Here first remove the double quote that you used before the img tag inside the angular brace as it is not allowed and include an alt attribute of the img tag. If instead of the image the alt msg is displayed u'll get to knw that the img tag is working fine and there is a problem with the source path of the image. For easier implementation, copy the image in the same folder as your html doc and only use the filename with its extension in its source attribute.. I hope this will solve your problem.. – Ruchir Feb 18 '11 at 5:26
<img src="file:///Desktop/Something.png" />

That should be it. @arex1337, you forgot to close the tag.

You don't have to close the tag in HTML5. – Closure Cowboy Feb 18 '11 at 4:57

you press the ctrl and G keys on your keyboard together then a popup will come up explaining how to upload the image – Yawn Feb 18 '11 at 5:04

Try beginning the url with file:// like this:

<img src="file:///home/user/Desktop/device.png">
