IMAGE HELP

The first thing you should remember: Only use .gif and .jpg images for your web page.  I don't mean .bmp images that you just rename with a .gif or .jpg file extension. The image must be converted by an image conversion program like Paint Shop Pro, (http://www.jasc.com/). You then save the converted image and replace yours. For photo type images and images with lots of dithering colors, convert to .jpg. For icons and smaller images and images with less than 256 colors, convert to .gif.

ADDING IMAGES TO YOUR PAGE

Adding an image to your web page is easy.  You just add the code where you want the image to appear.
<
img src="name of file.gif">
You can center the image with

<center><
img src="file.gif"></center>
You can have more than one image in a line.
<center><img src="file1.gif"><img src="file2.gif"></center>
If you want to separate them a little bit:

<center><
img src="file1.gif" HSPACE=#><img src="file2.gif"></center>
(#=the number of pixels you want to separate them by.)

  • ALIGNING IMAGES

Aligning an image is done by adding the proper align info inside the img tag:
mailboxIn this case the image is giving the
align=left tag and will stay to the left of any text entered. The next image is set align=rightmailbox so it stays to the right of any text entered.  When you want the text continue below the image following.  Add clear="all" to your <BR> tag.
So it  will appear <BR clear="all">.
Here's what the tag should look like:
<img src="file.gif" align="right"> Other alignment tags are:
top
texttop
middle
absmiddle
baseline
bottom
absbottom
center

  • LINKING WITH IMAGES

If you want to make an image into a link, it's just like any other link. <A HREF="url to go to"><img src="file.gif"></a> If you want to get rid of the border around the link image: <A HREF="url to go to"><img src="file.gif" BORDER="0"></A>

  • EMAIL WITH AN IMAGE

Making an image as a mail link is really easy. <A HREF="MAILTO:user@domain.com"><img src="file.gif" BORDER="0"></A>

To save any of the above images, right click the image and choose "Save As" or click on the image and save from your "File" menu.

  • BACKGROUND IMAGES

Adding a background image to your page is easy too. In your <BODY> tag just add BACKGROUND="name of file.gif" Remember, you should only have one <BODY> tag on your page. It should contain all of the attributes for your page. Here's the body tag for this page:
<body background="../images/mc.jpg" text="#000000" LINK="#FF0000" VLINK="#808080" ALINK="#0000FF">

TIP:  Use only lowercase for all your file names. This saves on mistakes later. Images and links are case SENsiTIve. <img src="file.gif"> isn't the same as <img src="FILE.gif">

Now go to any of the following links and find yourself some images and graphics. Just be careful how many images you put on a page. The more you have, especially animated .gif images, the slower your page will be to load. To save the images, right click on the image and choose "Save as"
