A photo gallery is a Web page that contains a collection of graphics that are arranged in a specific layout.

Customize Photo Gallery

The following example shows how to change the caption of an image to a hyperlink:
  1. Create a new disk-based Web, and then create a new blank page.
  2. On the Insert menu, point to
    Picture, and then click New Photo Gallery.
  3. On the Pictures tab, click
    Add, and then click either Pictures from Files or Pictures from Scanner or Cameras to locate your image files. Select an image, and then click
  4. In the Caption box, type the text that you want to use for your picture caption, and then click
  5. On the File menu, click
  6. In the Save As dialog box, type
    Photo.htm in the File name box, and then click Save.

    Note If you want the page to have a specific title, click
    Change Title in the Save As dialog box, type your new page title, and then click OK.
  7. In the Save Embedded Files dialog box, click OK.

    Note After FrontPage 2003 saves the page, your Web will have a new folder that is named Photogallery. In the Photogallery folder, there will be another folder that is named Photonnnnnnnn, where
    nnnnnnnn is an 8-digit random number.
  8. Open the
    Photonnn folder, and then double-click the Real.htm file.
  9. Select the text that is under the photo, and then make that text a hyperlink to where you want. To do this, with the text selected, click
    Hyperlink on the Insert menu. After you have selected or typed your hyperlink, click OK.
  10. On the File menu, click
    Save to save your changes to the page.
  11. On the File menu, click
    Close to close the Real.htm page.
  12. With the Photo.htm page open, point to
    Preview in Browser on the File menu, and then click the browser that you want to use to preview the Photo.htm file.

    Note You may have 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 Microsoft FrontPage and must not be altered.

Note If you double-click or right-click the photo gallery image, and then click Photo Gallery Properties to make changes, any changes that you made to the Real.htm file are overwritten.
