I am coding an extension for Magento 1.9. Now I need an image in my template. Where (which folder) should I store it? And how to access it with an <img>-tag?


You should place the images in the skin folder under the base/default theme.
Then access it as:

<img src="<?php echo $this->getSkinUrl('images/{your_extension_name}/image.png')?>" alt="" />

If the image is for admin section, then store it in skin/adminhtml/default/default/images/{your_extension_name}/image.png
