Using images in a website

You can add a picture (also called a graphic or image) to your web page from a file, scanner, or digital camera. In order to add a picture from a scanner or digital camera successfully, you need to connect your device to your system and install the device software on your system.

You can also add a picture to the background of the web page. For more information, see Set the page background.

To add a picture from a file to a web page

  1. In your web page, place your cursor where you want to add a picture, and then do one of the following:

    • Drag the picture from the Folder List panel or Site View into the Design view of your page.

    • On the Common, Standard, or Pictures toolbar, click Insert Picture From File Cc295270.f465e3dd-7241-4af4-b1ad-cb5dfc4c6a77(en-us,Expression.40).png. In the Picture dialog box, in the File Name box, specify the file you want to add, and then click Insert.

    • On the Insert menu, point to Picture, and then click From File. In the Picture dialog box, in the File Name box, specify the file you want to add, and then click Insert.

  2. In the Accessibility Properties dialog box, in the Alternate text box, type the alternate text you want. Alternate text makes your image accessible to screen readers. It also is visible in some browsers when the graphic is downloading, when it can't be found, or when a site visitor moves the pointer over it. For more information, see Set accessibility properties for an image.

  3. To add a long description, click Browse and select a file, and then click OK.
