Crazy, are you using an Editor Project (highly recommended)?
Go to where you have your website files on your computer. If they're not all in one place, you should create a folder and put everything together.
Within that folder (or your Projects folder), create a new folder and call it images (or img). Put all your site's photos into it. You should also have folders for your CSS and JS (if needed).
When using Projects, the Editor will upload all necessary files for you and let you know if it can't find something.
Your files should look something like this; the main project/site folder with your html pages, form files and sub-folders for images,etc. :

That is because there is no code in the file:

style.css

This should help:

Use External style sheet.

Also the image is not where you say it is.

/* Default CSS */
/* Generated by the CoffeeCup HTML Editor - www.coffeecup.com */
body { }

You're going to need a lot more than that in your stylesheet! :D

You might want to start with a template so you can see the HTML structure and the CSS – get a better idea of how it all works. ;)
