My course instructor demonstrated how to use a table as a label and how to insert images inside the table. My table has three columns and just one row. I am inserting a total of three images inside it. However, I am finding that each time I add an image to my table, that the size of the images is being reduced. Even if I open the Appearance tab and select 800x600 for the dimensions, the images still end up being very small. How can I solve this problem? Any help is appreciated. Thanks so much.
The latest browsers don't respect image size and table width properly.
Just open HTML view in your editor window, remove the width='xxx' form the <td width='xxx'> (Don't need the define of td width)
Then your image width will control the table column width, table width won't affect your image display.
Thanks so much. I appreciate your help. I opened the HTML editor, and every time I saw "width=xxx", I removed that entire phrase. Unfortunately, the images did not change. Did I do that right, or was I supposed to do something else? What about height?
Please keep the image width as it was. Don't remove the image width. Let the image width to control the table width.
Please let me know if this works.
I think it would be best if I shared a picture of the HTML. Please let me know which lines to removed since I was confused before. Thanks so much.
Oh, w=1600 and h=1200 is far too big. No browser can display it correctly, you monitor size may only 1200 in total. So it is impossible to display 3x1600 in one row. Then the clever browsers shrink it down.
Just change width='160' Height='120' or something smaller, make sure it is in the right ratio.
You'd better shrink it in Photoshop (File > Save for Web) before you insert your image into your page.
As an alternative to entering sizes in pixels can they be entered as a percentage?
No. Image size is better set as an actually screen size, the size you really need.
Make an image scaled down by size in HTML or percentage is a waste of bandwidth and add loading time for your end users and make your page not user friendly.
It seems the issue has been resolved. I had a screen sharing session with my course facilitator. We made some adjustments to the images in Photoshop Elements, such as cropping some white areas as well as saving the images for use on the web. It's definitely made a difference. Thanks for all of your help!
