Insert an image placeholder

Insert an image placeholder

An image placeholder is a graphic that you use until final artwork is ready to be added to a web page. An image placeholder is useful when you lay out web pages because it allows you to position an image on a page before you actually create the image.

  1. In the Document window, click once inside the first row of the first table.
  2. Select Insert > Image Objects > Image Placeholder.
  3. In the Image Placeholder dialog box, do the following:
    • Type banner_graphic in the Name text box.
    • Enter 700 in the Width text box.
    • Enter 90 in the Height text box.
    • Click the color box and select a color from the color picker. For this tutorial, select a reddish brown (#993300).
    • Leave the Alternate Text text box blank.
  4. Click OK.

    The image placeholder appears inside the first table. The image placeholder displays a label and the size attributes of the image that you’ll eventually place there.

  5. Save your page.
