            <input style="font-size:medium;background-color: #FFF8DC; position:absolute;top: 95%; left: 75%;" type="reset" value="Cancel"/>


I have placed the image in C:\Users\myuser\Pictures\HTML

Solution :

You have put image path like: url("paper.gif") then put your image in same folder where your html file has.

You have written correct way. Just set proper path.

background-image: url("paper.gif");

Or you want to set c: drive path the you can.

background-image: url("file://C:/Users/myuser/Pictures/HTML/paper.gif");

But i will not recommend it.

You can put image in images folder and give path like:

background-image: url("images/paper.gif");
