images

Please check my web page, angelfire.com/me2/haddock

Go to the link for "ancestors".
Why don't all my pictures load in the ancestors page?  Please check the source. I appreciate any help and advixe on mistakes.  How do I get a paragraph to be on the side of a picture and in the middle (not at the bottom).
Can you tell me some mistakes on the first page?

for your pictures: there is a typo in the second pic .. it says "images/CarolynPooandsisterSusan.jpg" when it should say "images/CarolynPooleandsisterSusan.jpg" ... for the third pic: "images/OPandLucyRodgers.gif" the file must be corrupt because I am not able to view this pic ... for the fourth pic, you need to change "Rodgers.gif" to "images/Rodgers.gif" and for the sixth pic "images/EugeniaandUrielBlount.gif" it must also be corrupt because I can't view that one either ...

for your alignment issue .... I recommend using a HTML WYSIWYG program (Frontpage works really well) and create your page in there.  If you don't want to do that, then there are some great HTML authoring help guides out on the web that can help you with this (you might start with tables)

Tables are how to get pictures and text to display side by side.

<TABLE WIDTH="75%" BORDER="5" CELLPADDING="5">
<TR>
<TD><IMG SRC="image/{filename}.GIF"></TD>
<TD VALIGN=TOP>Your text goes here</TD>
</TR>
</TABLE>

This defines a table that is one row x two cols. The table is 75% of the width of the page, has a 5 pixel border and text/images in the cells are 5 pixels (minimum) from the edge border. The left col has the image and the right col has the text. If you visit my web page (www.cyberchute.com/rvbus/madmark) you'll see where I have a lot of tables laid out like this.

I don't care for FrontPage much as it will sometimes make unexpected changes to your web page.

To do a clickable thumbnail, lets assume we have an image called PIC1.JPG and a thumbnail of it called TPIC1.JPG. Then I'd use:

<A HREF="PIC1.JPG"><IMG SRC="TPIC1.JPG"></A>

This makes the hotspot for the link to the large picture (<A HREF="PIC1.JPG">) the thumbnail image. Replace this in your table definition and it'll handle it from there.

Tables are about the only way to gain positional control over your web content.

If my files for 2 pictures are corrupt, then what do I do?  Do I delete them and scan them again?  Should I save them a different way (.gif or .jpg)?  I have great pictures!!!!  I NEED them to show!

it may be that they were transferred to the web page provider in ascii instead of binary... if they open locally on your computer (by double-clicking on them) then you don't have to rescan them.... just resend them, making sure to choose binary if that option is available

Grab a copy of WinFTP from IPSWITCH.COM It's free and works *great*. It's what I've used to transfer over 100Mb to my web host.
