Subject: [FreeHelp] Linking thumbnails to larger images
Date: Sun, 19 Oct 2008 00:42:50 +0200


I finally got back to working on making my images smaller. I succeeded in
linking to thumbnail images, leading to a larger image when clicked on. But
I got stuck on one image that's huge. When I replace this:

<img width="1170" height="1600" src="
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~familiengeschichte20/1901_12_30_constantin_droste_huelshoff_death_cert.jpg";
/>

with

<a href=

>
<img src="
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~familiengeschichte20/droste_thumbs/death_cert.jpg
></a>

I end up with no thumbnail image, but instead, the text below is underlined
and clickable and when clicked, goes to my larger image.

Here's a screenshot of what I'm seeing:

Here's my Freepages site before saving the above:

Can anyone tell me what I could be doing wrong with the certificate of death
image?

Also, referring to your suggestion, Pat, about "all images need an alt tag
with a description," I'm not sure what that means.

My page is mostly the result of using the WYSIWYG editor at FreePages, so I
realize there's a bunch of extra junk in there, which may or not be what is
causing the problem. But for now, I just want to get my huge images smaller.

Thanks,
Debbie
