i'd be grateful if someone from the frontpage topic area could take a look at a question that i have posted in the web/graphics topic area.  originally i used irfanview to set up a page of thumbnails, and irfanview automatically put them in alphabetical order.  but then i made changes to the html page generated in irfanview so that it pointed directly to the original images/thumbnails, and also made some changes to the formatting generally.  so having made these changes, and wanting to be able to add more images to the webpage and then sort them alphabetically, i am rather stuck as to how to do this.  here is the link to the original question:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Graphics/Q_21136701.html

i have tried to get want i want using frontpage - i.e. a page or rather several interlinking pages of thumbnails, sorted alphabetically, with minimal formatting except for the author's name under each thumbnail, and hyperlinks on the images rather than the text, and this is why i took the irfanview/dreamweaver route.  if there is a way of setting this up in frontpage i'd be grateful to hear about it, or if not a way of sorting thumbnails alphabetically within dreamweaver or another application would be good.  i want to sort from the top left of the screen to the bottom right, i.e. not just in columns or rows,

thanks,

nick

Hi,

In frontpage you have Insert>Web Component>Photo Gallery. This will allow you to select pirctures and the way to view them.  It will create one page linked to other pages and the Hyperlink will be on the photograph.

For sorting in FrontPage you can open the Photo Gallery and move the pictures up and down as you like.

But, for the best solution I use databases.
