Alignment Indicates the placement of the image on the page.

Specify size If checked, the height and width of the image will be specified in the code. If not checked, the height and width will be determined by the size of the image. It is recommended to have the image size specified because the image will load faster when it is brought up on the Web.
Width Indicates the width of the image in either pixels or as a percentage of the width of the original image.
Height Indicates the height of the image in either pixels or as a percentage of the height of the original image.
Keep aspect ratio If checked, the height will adjust automatically to stay proportionate with the width of the image.

Option Description
Picture Identifies the location where the images are stored.
Picture File Type... Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) saves images that are Clip Art, Screen Captured, and other images you create. Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) saves images with better quality and is mostly used when saving scanned photographs or digital camera pictures.
Low-Res Used to indicate a lower-quality, faster-loading image that will be displayed on the page until the actual image fully loads. The lower-quality image may be a black & white representation of that image.
Text Indicates the text that will be displayed if the graphic is not loaded. This occurs when the individual has turned off images, is using a screen reader, is using a text based browser, or the image is linked to incorrectly. This text also appears when the user's mouse hovers over the image.
Location Indicates the default hyperlink for the image.
Target Frame If the current page is a frames page, this option indicates which frame the link should be displayed in.
