  • Microsoft FrontPage 98 Standard Edition

This article was previously published under Q174845


In FrontPage 98 Editor, when you insert an image, the Image dialog box appears. This dialog box contains new features and functionality that are different from FrontPage 97. This articles describes these new features and functionality.


To insert an image, click Image on the Insert menu. The Image dialog box no longer features tabs. The dialog box has been redesigned, so that all of the features that were available in the FrontPage 97 Image dialog box are now available in a single, untabbed dialog box.

Two new options are available in the lower right-hand corner of the FrontPage 98 Image dialog box. Together, these two options replace the Other Location tab in the Image dialog box in FrontPage 97. One of these is identified by the globe and magnifying glass icon; the other by the folder and magnifying glass icon. These options are:

  • Use your Web Browser to select a page or file (Globe Icon)

Click this option to select a file located on the Internet or intranet.

  • Select a file on your computer (Folder Icon)

Click this option to select a file from a location on your hard disk.

The area below the Look In box replaces the Current FrontPage Web tab, and the ClipArt button replaces the ClipArt tab used in FrontPage 97.
