Inserting images

What's related > Images

From your images folder

You will need to have imported the picture into your images folder before you can insert it on your page.  See Importing files for details on how to do this.

  1. Position the cursor vertically where you want to the image to appear. Once the picture has landed on the page you will be able to align it to the left or right.

  2. Click the Insert Picture from File icon - that's the yellow square normally located to the right of the table icon.

  3. When the Picture window appears, open the images subfolder, if it is not already shown.

  4. Select the image you want to include. You'll see a preview of it in the right hand box.

  5. Click OK. The image will appear on the page.

It is not embedded in the page; rather, FrontPage, just like the browser, knows when displaying the page to include the image at that particular point. In other words, the page links to the image.

Aligning an image

To align the picture to the left or right, 

  1. Right-click the image, and select Picture Properties.

  2. Click on the Appearance tab and from the drop down list under Layout, select Left or Right

  3. Now add some alternative text to the picture 

Adding alternative text

For accessibility reasons, you'll need to add some alternative text for users who have either opted not to view images or who have visual impairments and use a screen-reader.

  1. Right-click the image, and select Picture Properties.

  2. Click the General tab and in the Text field under Alternative representations enter a brief description of the image.

  3. Click OK.

  4. When you preview the page in the browser, the text will appear when you hover your mouse over the image.
