Frontpage 2003

Recommended Posts

Not sure when it happened or how. I use Frontpage 2003 for website designing. After a fresh load of system I don't have a problem everything works great. But some where along the line my FP 2003 gets a setting corrupted, changed, not sure what happens.

I just know that when I'm building a website on my computer, and what to have a picture on the page, and the picture is either a gif or png with a transparent back ground, the picture shows up with either a black or white back ground in FP2003. When I view the page on the internet the gif or png has a light blue background.

Anyone know why this is happening and how to fix it so that a transparent background shows up transparent in Frontpage.

 

I check all my images to ensure that they have a transparent background before importing them into Frontpage.

Welcome to the forum DHS.

 

Sorry don't use FP but would imagine that it has something to do with the importing. Have you tried just FTP'ing the transparent image to your web space?

It's been a while ... but I've used FP in the past. As I remember it, there is a property setting on at least the .gif images that you can set as transparency or not. It's an optional thing.

 

Check the property for your pictures once they are in FP ... make sure they are identified as transparent.

 

Good luck!

Select your picture by clicking it. Then go to:

View/Toolbars/Picture

Now hover over each button until you find the one that says "Set transparent color" and click it.

Now go to the picture and click the color you want to set as transparent.

LMK if you have any problems.

Another thing, IE doesn't support transparent images. I've got screen shots to prove it lol. Opera/FF/Mozilla display transparent images properly, however. And as FP uses the MSIE engine to display pages, that would likely be the source of your problem.

 

Edit: At least I know for a fact it doesn't support transparent PNG's. I don't know about GIF's, don't use 'em.

Welcome to the forums DeputyMoniker

 

It does display transparent .gif images correctly, just not .png images.

There are some ways using IE 'behaviors' that you can force IE to support (somewhat) png transparency. You get a tiny flicker sometimes on the page load, as IE corrects itself and shows the transparent version... but it's possible to do.

 

Search for 'IE png transparency .htc'
