    hmm.. maybe i am a bit too stupid.. i did exactly what you said but it would only show the name of the image but not show it:
    <img
    src=“http://consi86.files.wordpress.com/2007/05/jump_logo_175.jpg “
    alt=“Jump“ />
    this is how i putted it.. or is it completely wrong?
    sorry.. I am really new in this field so :)
    thanks for your help

    Perhaps these instructions will be more understandable to you insert an image in a text widget

    Greets:

    Do note that your double quotes there are showing rich text formatting. That’s why they’re not working. Not sure how you’re writing that line but it looks like your cut and pasting it out of some sort of word precessor like Word or Wordpad. Please try this:

    <img
    src="http://consi86.files.wordpress.com/2007/05/jump_logo_175.jpg" alt="Jump" />

    Hope this helps,
