Problems with public/images

Hi all,

I'm having trouble getting images to show up on the browser. I added an
image to the public/images directory in Textmate, however all I get is
the image alt information when I refresh my browser.

In addition (oddly), whenever I close Textmate out and reopen it, the
image file I inserted in public/images is gone. I couldn't find anything
helpful from google when I entered the information.

I appreciate any help.

Sounds like the image file isn't actually getting put where you think it
is. Why not use the Finder or the command line to put the file in the
right place?

Best,

Thanks for the replies everyone,

Adding the file directly within the finder worked (Marnen's suggestion).
I tried doing

<%= image_tag("/images/kanagawa.jpg") %>

but that didn't work either. Adding image files that aren't really
associated with your application must be a curiosity within Textmate
itself.

Thanks everyone for your help!
