A photo gallery is a Web page that contains a collection of graphics arranged in a specific layout. If you choose, this article discusses how you can customize the appearance of a photo gallery by using Microsoft FrontPage 2002. To do this, you have to modify the Real.htm file, which is created automatically by FrontPage.
The following example shows how to change the caption of an image into a hyperlink:
Create a new disk-based Web and create a new page.
On the Insert menu, point to Picture, and then click New Photo Gallery.
Click Add. Select either Pictures from Files or Pictures from Scanner or Cameras to locate your image files. Select an image.
In the Caption box, type the text you want to use for your caption. Click OK.
On the File menu, click Save. Save the file as Photo.htm.
After FrontPage saves the page, your Web will have a new folder named Photogallery. And, in that folder will be another folder named Photonnn where nnn is a random number.
Open the Photonnn folder, and then double-click the Real.htm file.
Select the text under the photo and make it a hyperlink.
Save the page.
Preview the Photo.htm file in Internet Explorer. (NOTE: You may need to click Refresh to view the most recent version of this file.)
WARNING: Do not edit either the Real_p.htm or the Real_x.htm files in the Photonnn folder. Both of these files are used exclusively by FrontPage and should not be altered.
NOTE: If you change the photo gallery image by double-clicking or right-clicking it and then clicking Photo Gallery Properties on the shortcut menu, any changes you made to the Real.htm file will be overwritten.
