I want to put my own "twang" to certain elements on my website. For instance I'd like to have a image for say the a file attachment, instead of the normal box with browse after it. Can I do this? How can I do this. I'd like to apply images for my text areas, radio buttons, check boxes, etc.

You cannot add any own tags within html. you can add own tags only in XML.

That isn't what the topic creator was asking.

To change a button into an image:

<input type="image" src="image.jpg" alt="Submit button">

I am unsure if this will work for a browse button though. I got the code from http://www.webdevelopersnotes.com/tips/html/using_an_image_as_a_submit_button.php3

It would be easier to understand what you have presently and what you want to change if you posted a link to your site. If you're simply asking how to create images to use in place of buttons and such, you would need to use fireworks or photoshop, then as a poster said previously, set an attribute of type to image and src to image.path.

Actually what I'm getting at is for example... On this page there's images that you write code for, but I have no idea how to do it. How do you make these images functional?
