Can anybody help me? Image tag

Hi everybody I"m using the socialpro theme but can  put a picture on the front page. 

It just won't display .

I"m using an html tag <Img src = "friends.jpg" align="right" />  in the new_Index.php file

also the image is in the same folder.

Here is how the site looks

and this is how I want it to look with the image

Any help would be highly appreciated. 

also the classifieds plugin did not work for me it kept redirecting to the dashboard after a listing post or view.
