Adding Images to Your Web Pages
The Web is a graphical environment, but most of what is available on the Web is textual. This activity helps you add graphical elements to your Web pages. Everything from photographs of your favorite pet, to diagrams or cartoons can be placed on your Web page and this activity helps you add these visual elements to your HTML files.
In developing our lessons and activities, we made some assumptions about the hardware and
software that would be available in the classroom for teachers who visit the LETSNet Website. We
assume that teachers using our Internet-based lessons or activities have a computer with the necessary
hardware components (mouse, keyboard, and monitor) as well as a World Wide Web browser. In the
section below, we specify any "special" hardware or software requirements for a lesson or activity (in
addition to those described above) and the level of Internet access required to do the activity.
The Web is graphical, and people usually want to add images or graphics to their Web pages. This activity describes how you can add images and graphics to your HTML files and where you can locate images to download.
The IMAGE command identifies the position of an image file in an HTML document. The <IMG> tag allows for the fact that not all viewers are capable of displaying images and allows associated text to be align vertically along the side of the picture. <IMG SRC="coffeemug.gif" ALT="Morning Martini" ALIGN="middle">Is rendered: Morning Martini!
