posting jpeg photographs on website

Sandie5January 28, 2002

I have to add about 20 jpeg photos to a school website but I'm sure many of the people who will view the site have slower machines than me. I made up an html page with all the jpegs on it in thumbnail size. Should I now just have the pictures like to a page with only say 3 on each page that will show each pic in a decent size? Is there a good way to do this?

Just make sure your thumbnails are different smaller pictures. I have seen some people just change the size of the picture in the code and that doesn't help with the down load. To do this you will have to make a web page for each set of pictures and link to it from the thumbnail page. It would be easier if you had a program that would do it for you. If you have Netscape there is a webpage composer in it that is great for beginners.

Here's how I did thumbnails on one of my pages:
Model horses

I just tell people to use their back button, one picture per page. Then I don't have ho make up a whole separate page for each picture.

Here is a link that might be useful: model horses

You could also make each mini picture open in a new window by adding TARGET="_blank"

The code would look like this: (I used your 1st picture as a sample)

<A HREF="0333.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="mini-033.jpg" BORDER="0"></A>

Then the user can simple close the bigger picture when s/he's done and the mini pictures will still be in another browser.

Good luck! ------)>
