Chapter 6. Adding Hyperlinks > Creating Image Links

Creating Image Links

Obviously the Web isn’t limited to text-only links and FrontPage makes it easy to insert links into any image. You can link an entire image to a file or you can create what’s called a hotspot, which links a defined area of the image to another file. By putting multiple hotspots in an image, you can create links to multiple files.

To link an entire image to a file

1.
Make sure the Pictures toolbar is visible by choosing View > Toolbars > Pictures (Figures 6.41 and 6.42).

Figure 6.41. Before working with images, choose View > Toolbars > Pictures.


Figure 6.42. The Pictures toolbar includes tools for adding links and hotspots to images.


2.
Open the page containing the image you want linked and click the image to select it (Figure 6.43). Square black handles will appear on the image’s corners, indicating it’s selected.

Figure 6.43. Once an image is selected, square black handles will appear on the image’s corners.


3.
With the image still selected, right-click, and choose Hyperlink from the shortcut menu (Figure 6.44).

4.
When the Insert Hyperlink dialog box opens, you have all the choices already explained in Insert Hyperlink options. To link the image to another page in your current Web site, choose a file in the center window and click OK. The image will be linked to the selected page—as indicated by the status bar and the cursor pop-up (Figure 6.45).

Figure 6.45. Once linked, an image displays pop-up instructions whenever FrontPage’s cursor moves over it. The link address appears in the bottom status bar.
