Beth is correct.

To illustrate, I just took a few minutes to create a test Web page 
containing a photo using Microsoft Word, then saved it as a Web page. 

During the saving operation, Word created the HTML markup for the Web 
page test.htm, as well as a folder named test_files that contains the 
picture file image001.jpg.

Both the Web page and the folder containing the picture file were 
uploaded to a folder named test at our Web server, with the results 
that can be seen at


All the best,
