Hallo Gentlemen, I want to create a website similar to the one that I have linked you to here. It concerns the thumbnail images in lots of rows.
Question: Apart from the obvious differences between having an image in an HTML box as opposed to a Graphics Box, since I am creating all of this “inline” and not as fixed/absolute positioning by placing directly, would there be a distinct choice, for those of you who are experienced, between doing this as rows of ‘HTML Item’ graphics or rows of ‘Graphic Item’ graphics.
I am only asking because I have been experiencing awkward differences when using html and graphic items as inflow. Maybe I am not fully understanding the actual “SEMANTICS” of the code under the bonnet, otherwise I could make a decision without bugging you merry people.
Mmm…yes, but for the purpose of thumbnails graphic items would be the way to go. But thanks for reminding me Dave. No point making a HTML thumbnail item and then having to insert a smaller graphics item to import the small image. Or…Mmm… would it actually be convenient for some reason I am not aware of yet?
If you bring an image into an HTML box, that’s the same as bringing it
into a Graphics box and checking the Pass-through box on the File
dialog. The result is that Freeway imports the image without
modification of any kind. So only use this for Web-ready images or
other file-types. Freeway’s image processing engine will be idled, and
no cropping, scaling, rotating or compositing will be possible. The
time to use this is if you have already processed the image in
Photoshop or another image editor and hand-tweaked the compression,
dimensions, and format to your liking.

I was never quite clear on what the difference is in importing a
graphic into a graphic box or html box.
