About Sizing Images
Article ID: KB101300
FrontPage 2003 will automatically specify the size of a graphic, but lower
versions of FrontPage may not. If you're using FrontPage 2002, be sure to open
Image Properties and check the "Specify Size" checkbox.
Why is this a good idea? Specifying the size for an image "reserves" a
place on the page for it when the browser loads the web page. If you do not
specify the size, the browser will reserve a small, default amount of space for
the image, then "move the page content around" when the image actually loads.
This means that if someone goes to your page and starts reading the text while
the images are loading, they could get confused if the image loads, and the text
they are reading suddenly shows up in a different part of the screen. While
specifying the size isn't absolutely necessary, it will guarantee a better
end-user experience, and so it's recommended.
