Excerpt from

Chapter 4: Working with Pictures

Here's how the Picture toolbar tools (buttons) work:
  • Insert Picture from File Let's you navigate around and insert a picture.
  • Text Creates a box for caption text that attaches to the selected picture.
  • Auto Thumbnail Creates a thumbnail of the selected picture (see discussion of thumbnails earlier in this chapter).
  • Absolutely Positioned Assigns absolute positioning to the selected picture (see discussion of absolute positioning earlier in this chapter).
  • Bring Forward Works with absolutely positioned pictures-moving them in front of other objects on the page.
  • Send Backward Also works with absolutely positioned pictures-moving them behind other objects on the page.
  • Rotate Left, Rotate Right, Flip Horizontal, and Flip Vertical Rotates the picture.
  • More Contrast, Less Contrast, More Brightness, and Less Brightness Changes the brightness and contrast of the picture. Very useful-especially since most images need some brightening when they are placed in Web sites.
  • Crop Works like scissors-you can trim the edges off of a picture.
  • Line Style Allows you to define outlines for some pictures. However, for most pictures, you'll define outlines in the Picture Properties dialog box, while is explored in the next section of this chapter.
  • Format Picture Only works on pictures created with FrontPage's drawing tools, which are briefly addressed at the end of this chapter.
  • Set Transparent Color Used to make one color in a picture invisible so that the page background shows through. When you click this tool an eraser cursor appears. Use it to point and click at a color in a picture to make that color disappear.
  • Color Provides four color options (not all are available for every picture): Automatic (normal), Grayscale (shades of gray), Black and White (2 colors), and Washout (makes the picture colors fade).
  • Bevel Applies a frame around a picture.
  • Resample Overwrites your existing picture file with one that reflects the current size of the image. If you have made your picture smaller, this reduces file size.
  • Select Deselects other tools.
  • Rectanglular Hotspot, Circular Hotspot, and Polygonal Hotspot Draws clickable links on a picture, transforming it into an image map. And to help out, the Highlight Hotspots button highlights those clickable areas.
  • Restore Bails you out at times by undoing editing changes to your picture and converting back to the last saved version of your picture file.

Picture Links and Image Maps

You can assign a link to any image, or you can assign many links to a single image. Images with many links are called image maps. For example, you could literally take a picture of a map and draw different clickable link areas on it that corresponded to different countries, allowing visitors to jump to a link just by clicking a country on the map.

Creating a Picture Link

It's often effective to associate a link with a picture. The link can be to another Web page or even to another picture file. As visitors hover over a picture on your Web page, the hand icon that appears will let them know there is a link assigned to the image.

To Assign a Link to a Picture:

1: Select the picture.
2: Click the Create Hyperlinks button in the Standard toolbar. The Create Hyperlink dialog box appears.
3: Use one of the folder options in the Look In list on the left side of the Insert Hyperlink dialog box to choose a source for the target Web page. Navigate to a page in the list of pages in the dialog box.
4: Use the Screen Tip button to define text that will appear when a visitor hovers over your picture with his or her mouse cursor.
5: Use the Target Frame button, and click New Window in the Target Frame dialog box if you want the link to open in a new window.
6: After you have defined the target for your picture link, click OK in the Insert Hyper link dialog box.
Pictures with links automatically get borders placed around them, and the border color is the same as the color you assigned to link text. You'll explore how to get rid of a picture border later in this chapter.

Creating an Image

Image maps have many clickable areas that are defined using the Rectangular Hotspot, Circular Hotspot, or Polygonal Hotspot tools in the Picture toolbar.

To Create an Image Map:

1: Select the picture that you want to convert into an image map.
2: If the picture toolbar isn't visible, choose View I Toolbars I Pictures.
3: In the Picture toolbar, click the Rectangular Hotspot button, and click and drag to draw a rectangle around an area that will be a hotspot, ...
4: When you release your mouse button, the Insert Hyperlink dialog box appears. Navigate to a Web page to link the hotspot to, or enter an external URL (Web site) in the Address area of the dialog box, and then click OK.
5: You can add a circular hotspot by using the Circular Hotspot tool, or you can add an irregularly shaped hotspot by using the Polygonal Hotspot tool. To use the Polygonal tool, click several times to outline the hotspot, and double-click when you've completed the outline.
6: After you finish the image map, test your links in the Preview tab of Page view.

More Picture Properties

Most of the things you want to do to pictures are available from either the FrontPage Formatting toolbar (alignment), the Standard toolbar (links), or the Picture toolbar (contrast, coloring, transparency). And some picture editing-like sizing or moving a picture-is done just by clicking and dragging in Page view. There are a few, additional picture-formatting features that are hidden in the Picture Properties dialog box. The most important additional picture formatting features are listed here:
  • Alternative reprensentation Define the text that appears as a ToolTip when a visitor hovers over a picture or when a picture is viewed in a browser that does not support pictures.
  • Horizontal and vertical spacing Allow some "air" between your picture and the text that flows around it.
  • Border sizeThis is for the border around your picture or turning off the border all-together.
  • Interlacing "Fades in" GIF images that take a long time to download.
  • Progressive passes"Fades in" JPEG images that take a long time to download.

Exploring the Picture Properties Dialog Box

The Picture Properties dialog box has some features not available on toolbars. It also let's you look at change just about all the settings you defined for a picture using toolbar buttons and on-page editing.

Open the Picture Properties dialog box by doing any of these things:

  • Right-click the picture and choose Picture Properties from the context menu.
  • Click (once) on the picture, and choose Format I Properties from the menu bar.
  • Click once on the picture and press ALT+ENTER.
There are three tabs in the Image Properties dialog box: General, Video, and Appearance. For now, never mind the Video tab. Video is explored in Chapter 14.

The Appearance tab defines alignment-you can apply alignment using the Align Left acid Align Right buttons in the Formatting toolbar, but you can remove alignment here. You can also use the Specify Size check box to activate the Width and Height spin boxes and define the size of a picture digitally-by entering either pixels (the tiny dots that make up a monitor screen) or percentage sizes. You also use the Appearance tab to define border thickness and spacing around a picture...

Introduction

Introduction

Who Will Enjoy This

You will, if you want to create attractive, feature-packed, and easy-to-use Web sites with FrontPage. Because of its Microsoft Office-like interface, FrontPage is a very accessible Web design tool. But beneath the surface, you'll find powerful features that allow you to edit pictures, generate JavaScripts, and collect input data-features not available in any other Web design package. My goal with this book is to make those features accessible to both brand new Web designers, as well as veteran FrontPage designers who would like to add advanced features to their sites.

I've been teaching folks like yourself to use FrontPage for five years now. I've written Microsoft authorized books on how to pass the Microsoft FrontPage MCSD exam (and I've passed the Microsoft FrontPage Certified Professional exam myself). But I've also taught people FrontPage who have never created a Web site before. Perhaps most importantly, I use FrontPage almost every day to create Web sites. I've learned through trial and error the best ways to create Web sites with FrontPage, and also the best ways to learn FrontPage.

Beginning level, intermediate, and many advanced FrontPage designers will all find important resources in this book. Many chapters approach concepts like tables, frames, and input forms on different levels. At first, new FrontPage users might want to try the more basic step-by-step sections early in the chapter, while more advanced developers will push the envelope using all the features covered in a chapter.

And, this book is much more than a book. The accompanying CD-ROM, which is discussed in detail in the remainder of this introduction, has more than an hour of videos with demonstrations, tips, and candid advice.

FrontPage 2002 Virtual Classroom CD

This CD contains an exciting new kind of video-based instruction to help you learn FrontPage faster. We believe this learning tool is a unique development in the area of computer-based training. The author actually talks to you, right from your computer screen, demonstrating topics he wrote about in the book. Moving "screencams" and slides accompany the presentation, reinforcing what you're learning.

The technology and design of the presentation were developed by Brainsville.com. The content on the CD-ROM was developed by Osborne/McGraw-Hill, David Karlins, and Brainsville.com. Patents (pending), copyright, and trademark protections apply to this technology and the name Brainsville.com.

To ensure that the lessons play as smoothly as possible, please read the following directions for usage of the CD-ROM.

Getting Started

The CD-ROM is optimized to run under Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000 using the QuickTime player version 5 (or greater), from Apple. This CD-ROM is not designed to run on a Mac. If you don't have the QuickTime 5 player installed, you must install it either by downloading it from the Internet at http://www. quicktime.com, or running the Setup program from the CD-ROM. If you install from the Web, it's fine to use the free version of the QuickTime player. You don't need to purchase the full version.

To install the QuickTime player from the CD-ROM on a Windows PC:

1. Insert the CD-ROM in the drive.

2. Use Explorer or My Computer to browse to the CD-ROM.

3. Open the QuickTime folder.

4. Double-click the setup program there.

5. Follow the setup instructions on screen.

Running the CD in Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000

Minimum Requirements:
  • QuickTime 5 player
  • Pentium II P300 (or equivalent)
  • 64MB of RAM
  • 8X CD-ROM
  • Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows ME, or Windows NT 4.0 with at least Service Pack 4
  • 16-bit sound card and speakers
FrontPage 2002 Virtual Classroom CD-ROM can run directly from the CD (see the following for running it from the hard drive for better performance if necessary) and should start automatically when you insert the CD in the drive. If the program does not start automatically, your system might not be set up to automatically detect CDs. To change this, you can do the following:
1. Choose Settings I Control Panel, and click the System icon.

2. Click the Device Manager tab in the System Properties dialog box.

3. Double-click the Disk drives icon and locate your CD-ROM drive.

4. Double-click the CD-ROM drive icon, and then click the Settings tab in the CD-ROM

Properties dialog box. Make sure the Auto Insert Notification box is checked. This specifies that Windows will be notified when you insert a compact disc into the drive.

If you don't care about the auto-start setting for your CD-ROM, and don't mind the manual approach, you can start the lessons manually. Here's how:

1. Insert the CD-ROM.

2. Double-click the My Computer icon on your Windows desktop.

3. Open the CD-ROM folder.

4. Double-click the startnow.exe icon in the folder.

5. Follow the instructions on screen to start.

When the program autostarts, you'll see a small window in the middle of your screen with an image of the book; click that image to launch the QuickTime player and start the lessons.

The QuickTime player window should open and the Virtual Classroom introduction should begin running. On some computers, after the lesson loads you must click the Play button to begin. The Play button is the big round button with an arrow on it at the bottom center of the QuickTime player window. It looks like the play button on a VCR. You can click the links in the lower-left region of the QuickTime window to jump to a given lesson. The author will explain how to use the interface.

The QuickTime player will completely fill a screen that is running at 800 x 600 resolution. (This is the minimum resolution required to play the lessons.) For screens with higher resolution, you can adjust the position of the player on screen, as you like.

If you are online, you can click the Brainsville.com logo under the index marks to jump directly to the Brainsville.com Web site for information about additional video lessons from Brainsville.com. (See the description in the back of this book about the Web Design CD Extra for more details.)

Improving PlayBack

Your Virtual Classroom CD-ROM employs some cutting-edge technologies, requiring that your computer be pretty fast to run the lessons smoothly. Many variables determine a computer's video performance, so we can't give you specific requirements for running the lessons. CPU speed, internal bus speed, amount of RAM, CD-ROM drive transfer rate, video display performance, CD-ROM cache settings and other variables will determine how well the lessons play. Our advice is to simply try the CD. The disk has been tested on laptops and desktops of various speeds, and in general, you'll need at least a Pentium II-class computer running in excess of 300Mhz for decent performance. (If you're doing serious Web-design work, it's likely your machine is at least this fast.)

Close Other Programs

For best performance, make sure you are not running other programs in the background while viewing the CD-based lessons. Rendering the video onscreen takes a lot of computing power, and background programs such as automatic e-mail checking, Web-site updating, or Active Desktop applets (such as scrolling stock tickers) can tax the CPU to the point of slowing the videos.

Adjust the Screen Color Depth to Speed Up Performance

It's possible that the author's lips will be out of synch with his voice, just like Web-based videos often look. There are a couple solutions: Lowering the color depth to 16-bit color makes a world of difference with many computers, laptops included. Rarely do people need 24-bit or 32-bit color for their work anyway, and it makes scrolling your screen (in any program) that much slower when running in those higher color depths. Try this:
1. Right-click the desktop and choose Properties.

2. Click the Settings tab.

3. In the Colors section, open the drop-down list box and choose a lower setting. If you are currently running at 24-bit (True Color) color, for example, try 16-bit (High Color). Don't use 256 colors, because video will appear very funky if you do.

4. OK the box. With most computers these days, you don't have to restart the computer after making this change. The video should run more smoothly now, because your computer's CPU doesn't have to work as hard to paint the video pictures on your screen.

If adjusting the color depth didn't help the synch problem, see the following section about copying the CD's files to your hard disk.

When lessons are playing you're likely to not interact with the keyboard or mouse. Because of this, your computer screen might blank, and in some cases (such as with laptops) the computer might even go into a standby mode. You'll want to prevent these annoyances by turning off your screen saver and checking the power options settings to ensure they don't kick in while you're viewing the lessons. You make settings for both of these parameters from the Control Panel.

1. Open Control Panel, choose Display, and click the Screen Saver tab. Choose None for the screen saver.

2. Open Control Panel, choose Power Management, and set System Standby, Turn off Monitor, and Turn off Hard Disks to Never. Then click Save As and save this power setting as Brainsville Courses. You can return your power settings to their previous state, if you like, after you are finished viewing the lessons. just use the Power Schemes drop-down list and choose one of the factorysupplied settings, such as Home/Office Desk.

Copy the CD Files to the Hard Disk to Speed Up Performance

The CD-ROM drive will whir quite a bit when running the lessons from the CD. If your computer or CD-ROM drive is a bit slow, it's possible the author's lips will be out of synch with his voice, just like Web-based videos often look. The video might freeze or slow down occasionally, though the audio will typically keep going along just fine. If you don't like the CD constantly whirring, or you are annoyed by outof-synch video, you might be able to solve either or both problems by copying the CD-ROM's contents to your hard disk and running the lessons from there.

To move CD content to your hard disk:

1. Using My Computer or Explorer, check to see that you have at least 650M free space on your hard disk.

2. Create a new folder on your hard disk (the name doesn't matter) and copy all the contents of the CD-ROM to the new folder. (You must preserve the subfolder names and folder organization as it is on the CD-ROM).

3. Start the program by opening the new folder and double-clicking the file startnow.exe. This will automatically start the lessons and run them from the hard disk.

4. (Optional) For convenience, you can create a shortcut to the startnow.exe file and place it on your desktop. You will then be able to start the program by clicking the shortcut.

Update Your QuickTime Player

The QuickTime software is updated frequently and posted on the Apple QuickTime Web site (www.quicktime.com). You can update your software by clicking Update Existing Software, from the Help menu in the QuickTime player. We strongly suggest you do this from time to time.

Make Sure Your CD-Rom Drive is Set for Optimum Performance

CD-ROM drives on IBM PCs can be set to transfer data using the DMA (Direct Memory Access) mode, assuming the drive supports this faster mode. If you are experiencing slow performance and out-of-synch problems, check this setting. These steps are for Windows 98 and Windows ME:
1. Choose Control Panel I System.

2. Click the Device Manager tab.

3. Click the plus (+) sign to the left of the CD-ROM drive.

4. Right-click the CD-ROM drive.

5. Choose Properties.

6. Click the Settings tab.

7. Look to see if the DMA check box is turned on (has a check mark in it). If selected, this increases the CD-ROM drive access speed. Some drives do not support this option. If the DMA check box remains selected after you restart Windows, this option is supported by the device.

In Windows 2000, the approach is a little different. You access the drive's settings via Device Manager as above, but click IDE/ATAPI Controllers. Right-click the IDE channel that your CD-ROM drive is on, choose Properties, and make the settings as appropriate. (Choose the device number, 0 or 1, and check the settings.) Typically it's set to DMA If Available, which is fine. It's not recommended that you change these settings unless you know what you are doing!

TroubleShooting

This section offers solutions to common problems. Check www.quicktime.com for much more information about the QuickTime player, which is the software the Virtual Classroom CD uses to play.

The CD Will Not Run

If you have followed the instructions above and the program will not work, you might have a defective drive or CD. Be sure the CD is inserted properly in the drive. Test the drive with other CDs to see if they run.

The ScreenCam Movie In! A Lesson Tangs

If the author continues to talk, but the accompanying screencam seems to be stuck, just click the lesson index in the lower-left region of the QuickTime window to begin your specific lesson again. If this doesn't help, close the QuickTime window; then start the Virtual Classroom CD again.

Volume Is Too Low or Totally Silent

1. Check your system volume first. Click the speaker icon next to the clock, in the lower-right corner of the screen. A little slider pops up. Adjust the slider, and make sure the Mute check box is not checked.

2. Next, if you have external speakers on your computer, make sure your speakers are turned on, plugged in, wired up properly, and the volume control on the speakers themselves is turned up.

3. Note that the QuickTime player also has a volume control setting. The setting is a slider control in the lower-left of the QuickTime player window.

4. The next place to look if you're still having trouble is in the Windows volume controls. Double-click the speaker next to the clock and it will bring up the Windows Volume Control sliders. Make sure the slider for Wave is not muted, and make sure it's positioned near the top.

    Bringing It All Home

    My bookshelf is full of FrontPage books, from 'bibles' to 'how to.' and at best they are reference books, sources to pore over in a crisis. FrontPage 2002 Virtual Classroom with Cdrom represents an exciting new concept. We often ask 'walk me through' a problem, and here we have someone to do just that anytime we want. The combination of clear explanation and animated screen shots is a powerful teaching tool, and I found that I quickly assimilated several procedures which have given me fits til now. Quickly absorbed, clear, effective, I highly recommend this method of owning your own trainer who lives on your bookshelf.

    great resource book

    This book is not only loaded with great instruction, but the author also explains the alternatives, consequences and perks to doing things. Always reminding us that pizazz doesn't always translate well on older machines. The layout is attractive and easy to follow. Especially helpful for novice webdesigners.
