I am new in the field of web pages, and I started a page online through GTE. And all I could do is type info.  I called them and they told me that I needed to download the WS_FTP client program and I did.  All I want is a simple page but I want to put a few pictures of my truck on the page and change a few things in the text area.  But I have no idea on how to do that.

for a start:

Prepare your page on your own computer: make a new directory and put your opictures in it and make HTML file in it (called something.html). You will have to learn some basic HTML code, or use an wysywyg-HTML-editor. When you use netscape Gold, it has an inbuilt editor (choose "file", "new document", "blank" to start with an empty document).

If you will use a plain text editor, you can add an image to your page by this code:
<img src="name-of-the-image.gif">

remember that you can only use gif and jpg images.

You can view your pages in your own browser without being online: doubleclick on the .html file.

hope this helps.

Here we go:

First you need a WYSIWYG web page editor. WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) is editing a page without looking at the code.
One good one is Microsoft's free Frontpage express, included with Internet Explorer 4.0.

Next, take your scanned pictures and use the insert/image menu item to load the window to add pictures to a web page. I assume your page is loaded in the editor and the cursor is where you want the pic.

Find your picture by pressing browse..., and click OK until you are back to the main screen.

Save the page in it's own subdirectory.
Finally, go to the directory where you saved it in the WS_FTP local window.

Use the logon info given to you by GTE; it will take you to your directory.

copy your files by selecting them and pressing the arrow pointing to the remote window.

If it doesn't work right away, don't dispair.

just open notepad, then open your page in it.
use search to find <IMG (not case sensitive)
just take everything between the SRC=" and the first letter of the name of the image out. Do this for each one. Upload the new page with WS_FTP, and test it.
