Link to Image

Link to Image is a simple action requested by a FreewayActions.com user who needed to quickly link a series of thumbnail images to their associated larger versions. Although Freeway allows links to be constructed very quickly and accurately between internal pages it doesn't extend this simplicity to images or any other resources.

Here is a very simple example where the thumbnail links to the larger image in a new browser window;


Adding the action to your pages:
Link to Image is generally what is called an item action. Applying the action to a specific image is quite simple. Simply follow the ' Applying Item Actions ' guidelines.

Using the action:
Once applied to a thumbnail image all of the settings relating to the action can be viewed and set from the Link to Image tab in the Actions palette. If the palette is not visible simply select Actions from the Window menu and the palette will open (figure 2.1).

Figure 2.1 - The Link to Image action interface.

The Activate check box (item4a) is something that you will find in a lot of these actions as it allows action code to be disabled without needing to be removed from the item which would, in turn, lose any of the user settings applied to it. It allows users to quickly add and remove action functionality very quickly and easily.

Below the Activate check box are the controls for selecting the linked image as well as setting for the link itself.

Use the Image pop-up menu (item5a1) to select the image (in GIF or JPEG format) the thumbnail image will link to.

Either select a predefined target for the link from the Target menu (item6a1) or should you wish to specify a named frame or window simply select Other... and type the name of the target in the Other field (item7a1).

To add Link to Image functionality to your web pages you will need Freeway 3.1 or higher.

Browser compatibility:
Link to Image produces standard HTML that all modern browsers will understand.
