For your original query, the answer is: not with JavaScript. Use your server-side language, e.g. PHP, ASP, etc.

In your code, change line 3 to
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. window.onload = function()
Is thispicture a variable? If not, and the name of the image is thispicture, you can use
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. document.images["thispicture"].src = ...
You also need to use a valid image file name/path.
