Lesson 2. Working with Graphics > Inserting an Image Placeholder

Inserting an Image Placeholder

You have the option to insert an image placeholder if you do not have the final image. A placeholder can be inserted and used to approximate how the final graphic will appear on the page in combination with text, tables, or other elements.

1.
Place the insertion point on a new line after the second paragraph of body text. Click the Image Placeholder button on the Common tab of the Insert bar.

The Image Placeholder dialog box appears.

2.
In the name text field, type belowlight. Set the width to 250 and the height to 195. Click the color box and use the swatches to pick black; then type below the light source in the Alt text field. Click OK.

The image placeholder appears in the document window. It is black and displays the image name and the dimensions.

Image placeholders will display as broken images when you preview in a browser. To fix this, you will need to replace the image placeholder with the intended image as described in the next exercise.
