Apologies to the Wizard of Oz for the title. I just couldn’t resist!

Though Summitpost has a perfectly good (and easy) way to intermingle pictures with text on a page, for some reason I can’t quite explain, there have been times when I wanted to put images on a page in ways that couldn’t be achieved so simply. So, I began to research. With the help of some generous Summitpost members, the SP FAQ page, perusing the Forums, plus a little searching on the web, I now have a little more control over picture placement.

Since I consider Summitpost to be a community of shared resources, I thought it fitting that I share what I've learned about tables and pictures. I hope to keep this article as “dynamic” as possible. As I learn more, and, as I receive suggestions, I'll make additions.

Though I hope this article will go part way toward providing help in the "how to" for tables and pictures, here are a few additional places to get information about HTML, tables, and pictures.

The Fast and Easy Way to Make a Table on Summitpost

W3C School

HTML Code Tutorial



The Standard Summitpost Picture

When you use the "Insert Image" button to place images on your pages, pictures display in a fashion similar to this.
 
Pica
My little buddy, the Pica


The HTML code which is inserted... [ img:248632:alignleft:small:Pica ]

The advantages are...

    o - It's a fast and easy way to insert a picture into your text,
    o - You have control over the size (thumbnail, small, medium),
    o - Using the "standard" procedure allows you to include caption text with the picture;
    o - The picture is "clickable" - that is, when you click on the picture with your mouse,
          you see the picture's "page" with its additional options for viewing, voting, etc.


One disadvantage of using this method is, your pictures always have a border placed around them.

Displaying a Small Picture Without a Border

If you don't want a border around your picture, you can use the following html code.

< img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/small/206215.jpg" > - where to find the picture for display



However, controlling placement of the picture on the page (left, center, right) requires a bit more code.


< p align="left" > - left justify the paragraph (image)
< img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/small/206215.jpg" >
- where to find the picture for display
< /p >
- end paragraph positioning





< p align="center" > - center the paragraph (image)
< img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/small/206215.jpg" >
- where to find the picture for display
< /p >
- end paragraph positioning




< p align="right" > - right justify the paragraph (image)
< img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/small/206215.jpg" >
- where to find the picture for display
< /p >
- end paragraph positioning



You may have to change the filename extension ".jpg" to all caps ".JPG" to get your picture to display.
It all depends upon how the picture was saved when you uploaded it to Summitpost.
If you used lowercase for the ".jpg" filename extension and your picture looks like this , just change the filename extension to uppercase. The reverse (changing .JPG to .jpg) may also be required.

Please note that you are going to have to remove spaces to the right of the < symbol and to the left of the > symbol in the above examples and in all that follow. I have included extra spaces and lines in the example HTML code for clarity and to allow room for explanations.

You will not be able to just cut and paste. Some editing will be required on your part before the code (as it appears on this page) will operate correctly.


Displaying a Medium Picture Without a Border

Pictures in medium and large size can also be displayed without a border. You have the option of placing each picture left, center, or right on the page by using the < p align="..." > code sequence.

BUT, don't forget to include < /p > (ends the alignment code sequence) in the HTML code immediately following the code for displaying your picture; otherwise everything which follows will be placed in the same horizontal position you picked for image placement.


< p align="center" > - center the paragraph (image)
< img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/medium/204161.jpg" >
- where to find the picture for display
< /p >
- end paragraph positioning



Displaying a Large Picture Without a Border


< img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/large/252351.JPG" > - where to find the picture for display

Because the image will be bigger than most peoples' screens, displaying a large picture on Summitpost is something you should do sparingly, if ever.


Pictures in Tables

There are times when you want to show pictures in a format similar to the way they are displayed on a Summitpost Album.
The following method will not duplicate an Album display exactly, but in most cases will suffice.

The concept here is to set up a table, then, use the "Insert Image" button to place a picture in each cell.

In most cases, medium- and large-sized pictures are too big to be used in this situation.

Tables "auto-adjust" to the size of picture you choose to display (thumb or small)
and for a mixture of picture formats (verticle and horizontal).


This is the HTML code required to display the following table of pictures.


< noformat > - clears all previous formatting
< table border="1"
- sets the size of the table's border
    bordercolor="993300"
- establishes the color of the table's border
    cellspacing="2"

    cellpadding="2" >
- sets the space between the cell's edge and its contents
< tr >

          [ img:237979:aligncenter:small:Gem Lake Reflections, #1. ]

Picture Tables - Small Pictures - Pictures Without Borders

If you don't want the pictures included in your table to have individual borders, it requres different HTML code for the display
of each image. Compare the following code with that in the above table to see the differences. The code for the "table" is unchanged.

Be aware that when using this method to diplay your pictures without individual borders, the images are no longer "clickable."


< noformat > - clears all previous formatting
< table border="1"
- sets the size of the table's border
    bordercolor="993300"
- establishes the color of the table's border
    cellspacing="2"
- sets the distance between the table's cells
    cellpadding="2" >
- sets the space between the cell's edge and its contents
< tr >
- begins the first (top) row of the table
< th >
- begins a cell in the table
< img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/small/204161.jpg" >
- where to find the picture for display
< /th >
- ends a cell in the table
< th > < img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/small/206216.jpg" > < /th >
< th > < img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/small/234691.JPG" > < /th >
< /tr >
- end the first (top) row
< tr >
- begin the next row
< th > < img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/small/236759.JPG" > < /th >
< th > < img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/small/206223.jpg" > < /th >
< th > < img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/small/242293.JPG" > < /th >
< /tr >
- end the row
< /table >
- end the table
< /noformat >
- end noformat


Notice that some of the images require the use of a "JPG" filename extension rather than "jpg."
Expect this to be the case fairly often.

Besides the obvious fact that different pictures are being displayed in the table above and that below, there is
one other (and more meaningful) difference - the HTML code used to find and display each image.



[ img:234691:aligncenter:small:Trapper Peak ]
- clickable but with a border
< img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/small/234691.JPG" >
- no border but not clickable



Picture Tables - Thumbnail Pictures - Pictures Without Borders

The required change to the html code is minimal if all you want to do is reduce the picture size from small to thumbnail.

If you compare the following code with that just above to see the difference, you'll see the only difference is...

< th > < img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/small/206223.jpg" > < /th >
< th > < img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/thumb/206223.jpg" > < /th >



< noformat > - clears all previous formatting
< table border="1"
- sets the size of the table's border
    bordercolor="993300"
- establishes the color of the table's border
    cellspacing="2"
- sets the distance between the table's cells
    cellpadding="2" >
- sets the space between the cell's edge and its contents
< tr >
- begins the first (top) row of the table
< th >
- begins a cell in the table
< img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/thumb/237113.JPG" >
- where to find the picture for display
< /th >
- ends a cell in the table
< th > < img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/thumb/243091.jpg" > < /th >
< th > < img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/thumb/242287.JPG" > < /th >
< /tr >
- end the first (top) row
< tr >
- begin the next row
< th > < img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/thumb/252351.JPG" > < /th >
< th > < img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/thumb/206223.JPG" > < /th >
< th > < img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/thumb/230870.JPG" > < /th >
< /tr >
- end the row
< /table >
- end the table
< /noformat >
- end noformat




Picture Tables - 50 x 50 Pixel Pictures - Pictures Without Borders

There is one additional picture size available on Summitpost, a small, 50 x 50 pixel image. Summitpost creates and keeps these small copies (of every uploaded picture) in the "avatars" sub-directory. If you wish to use these small representative images in a table format, use the following html code.

The difference is...

< th > < img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/thumb/206223.jpg" > < /th >
< th > < img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/avatars/206223.jpg" > < /th >



< noformat > - clears all previous formatting
< table border="1"
- sets the size of the table's border
    bordercolor="993300"
- establishes the color of the table's border
    cellspacing="2"

    cellpadding="2" >
- sets the space between the cell's edge and its contents
< tr >

< /tr >
- end the row
< /table >
- end the table
< /noformat >
- end noformat




Changing a Table's Visual Features

Now let's play with the borders and background of the tables.

Increasing the "border" from a value of 1 to 10 gives the following result.


< noformat >
< table border="10" bordercolor="993300" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="2" >
< tr >
< th > < img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/thumb/237113.JPG" > < /th >
< th > < img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/thumb/243091.jpg" > < /th >
< th > < img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/thumb/242287.JPG" > < /th >
< /tr >
< tr >
< th > < img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/thumb/252351.JPG" > < /th >
< th > < img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/thumb/206232.JPG" > < /th >
< th > < img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/thumb/230870.JPG" > < /th >
< /tr >
< /table >
< /noformat >





To change the color of the border, change the "bordercolor" value.


From < table border="10" bordercolor="993300" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="2" >

To < table border="10" bordercolor="ff0033" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="2" >


Values for colors which are "good" to use can be found at... Web Source



To change the spacing between the table's cells, change the value of "cellspacing".


From < table border="10" bordercolor="ff0033" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="2" >

To < table border="10" bordercolor="ff0033" cellspacing="10" cellpadding="2" >




To change the space between each cell's border and the edge of the pictures, change the "cellpadding" value.


From < table border="10" bordercolor="ff0033" cellspacing="10" cellpadding="2" >

To < table border="10" bordercolor="ff0033" cellspacing="10" cellpadding="10" >




You can give color to the table's background by using "bgcolor".


From < table border="10" bordercolor="ff0033" cellspacing="10" cellpadding="10" >

To < table border="10" bordercolor="ff0033" cellspacing="10" cellpadding="10" bgcolor="00ff66" >


Again, values for colors which are "good" to use can be found at... Web Source



Making changes to just these five table-defining values, gives a substantial amount of control over how tables look.

    o border - controls the size of the table's border
    o bordercolor - controls the color of the table's border
    o cellspacing - controls the amount of space between the table's cells
    o cellpadding - controls the amount of space between the image and the edge of the cell
    o bgcolor - controls the background color of the table

Picture Tables - Pictures Without Borders - Invisible Table Border

There are times when you want to display pictures using a table format but do not want the table to be visible (that is, no borders and no lines between cells). This can be managed by setting the value of "border" to zero.

If you wish, for the sake of simplicity, you may also remove "border" from the table's "definition" and accomplish the same result - no visible border.

Of course, if the border is no longer visible, "bordercolor" is no longer needed and may be removed from the table's "definition."

You may still want to set the values of "cellspacing" and "cellpadding" to control how the pictures are spaced on the screen, but it's not required.



< noformat >
< table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2" >
< tr >
< th > < img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/thumb/237113.JPG" > < /th >
< th > < img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/thumb/243091.jpg" > < /th >

< /tr >
< /table >
< /noformat >



Clickable Captions

One of the problems with NOT using the "standard" method ("Insert Image" button) for adding pictures, is that the images are not "clickable." That can be remedied quite easily in a table by adding a "clickable" caption beneath each picture.


< noformat > - clears all previous formatting
< table
- begins the table definition
    border="0"
- sets the size of the table's border to zero so it will not be visible
    cellspacing="0"
- sets the distance between the table's cells (this line of code is not required)
    cellpadding="2" >
- sets the space between the cell's edge and its contents
< tr >
- begins the first (top) row of the table
< th >
- begins a cell in the table
< img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/thumb/237113.JPG" >

< br >

Clickable Pictures Without Borders

There is another solution for making borderless pictures clickable, one which I think is a bit more elegant.

Using this method not only makes the image clickable, but when the viewer moves the mouse pointer over the picture, the name (title) of the picture appears in a little box, thus eliminating the need for captions, clickable or otherwise.


< a href="http://www.summitpost.org/view_object.php?object_id=252348" > - clickable link to the picture's page
< img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/medium/252348.jpg"
- where to get the picture for display
    title="Melting Snow" >
- the picture's name
< /a >
- end link




Clickable Pictures With Borders

Now that we've gone to all the trouble of eliminating the "default" border from a picture while retaining the picture's "clickability", we can make things more complicated by adding a border of our own to the picture.

Two methods come to mind. One uses a single-celled table to place the border.


< noformat > - clears all previous formatting
< table
- begins the table definition
    border="10"
- sets the size of the table's border
    bordercolor="ff0033"
- establishes the color of the table's border
    cellspacing="8"
- sets the distance between the table's cells
    cellpadding="8"
- sets the space between the cell's edge and its contents
    bgcolor="0" >
- establishes the color of the table's background
< tr >
- begins the only row of the table
< th >
- begins the only cell in the table
< a href="http://www.summitpost.org/view_object.php?object_id=243086" >
- clickable link to the picture's page
< img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/medium/243086.jpg"
- where to get the picture for display
    title="Camas & Stump" >
- the picture's name
< /a >
- end link
< /th >
- ends the only cell
< /tr >
- ends the only row
< /table >
- ends the table
< /noformat >
- ends the "noformat" command





The other method uses "style" to define the border. This is a good method to use when you're displaying only one picture and you don't want the border to look like those which appear around tables.

If you use the current version of Internet Explorer, you will see no difference between a border using the table method and one using the “style” method (assuming you have the same size border and use the same colors). However, if your browser is Mozilla Foxfire, you will see a difference. I use Mozilla Foxfire most of the time and included the two methods for others who also do.


< a href="http://www.summitpost.org/view_object.php?object_id=252343" > - clickable link to the picture's page
< img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/medium/252343.jpg"
- where to get the picture for display
    title="Fall Sunrise Over Pond"
- the picture's name
    style="border-style: solid;
- sets the border style
    border-width: 15px;
- sets the border width
    border-color: red;" >
- sets the border color
< /a >
- end link




Displaying Pictures in Non-Standard Sizes

There are times when you want to put a picture on a page that is differently-sized from the standard large, medium, small, or thumbnail image. Fortunately there are two atributes of "img" which can provide a bit of help - "width" and "height."

Be advised if you include both of these attributes for the display of a single image, you are likely to cause the picture to be distorted (unless you are VERY careful with your math). If you specify just one of the attributes - "width" or "height" - the image will be automatically (and correctly) scaled by the browser. There may be instances when including both is appropriate; you either wish to distort the image, or, a slight distortion won't matter.


< img src="http://www.summitpost.org/images/medium/205862.JPG" - where to find the picture for display
    width="350px"
- set the width
    height="460px" >
- set the height



Notice the above example points to the "medium" version of the image. Although you might think that pointing to the "original", "large", or "small" version would work just as well because the HTML code establishes the exact size to be placed on the screen, you'd only be partially correct. Pointing to a too-small picture, then stretching it to a larger size for display, will make the image look blocky and low-resolution. It's better to point to a too-large picture file and "reduce" it to fit into a smaller space. Best however, is to pick the appropriately-sized picture file which only needs to be reduced a small amount to fit your allotted space.

Last Table

Here is one last table with a new set of pictures, all of which are "clickable" and have titles which appear when you hover your mouse over the image.

Notice that I've chosen to set both the "width" and "height" attributes. I wanted to make sure each image was similarly sized for use in the table display and knew, that in this case, a slight distortion of the images wouldn't matter.

Summary

Tables provide a good method for displaying images and closely-related text in a block-type format. I hope the above information will help in your use of tables, especially for pictures.

Remember, a table in its simplest form requires no more code than...


< table > - start the table
< tr >
- start a row
< th > Cell Contents < /th >
start cell - insert contents - end cell
...
- repeat cells as required
...
< /tr >
- end the row
...
- repeat rows and cells as required
...
< /table >
- end the table

If you're interested in more help with the HTML required for tables, have a look at Setting Tables Using HTML.

Each cell's contents is up to you and may consist of text, pictures, a combination of the two, or, if you really want to
make things complicated, another table. Now THAT sounds like fun!

Thanks for the comment, though "teachings" might be a bit much. I think "collector" or "conduit" may be more appropriate. I don't know enough (yet) to be considered a teacher.

Thanks Aaron,

I've learned a lot from the work you have (and continue to) put into Summitpost. If I'm able to give back just a little, it's my pleasure.

There was no reason to feel like a "moron" in the first place. HTML is not something which is required on a daily basis. Nonetheless, I would be remiss if I did not now welcome you to "The World of Nerds."

I've never done any html at all before coming to SP recently, and this information is so helpful. I refer back to it all the time and it's become a critical recource in my recent submissions- I'm hopeless without it. Thanks for putting this together for all of us!
