I created a word doc from scanned pages (.jpg) and then made it a web page, filtered. However, when I link to it as a file, it opens but I get the picture holder screen and the file is empty. How can I resolve this?

Hi joyce,

How did you make it into a web page, and what does 'filtered' mean? What format is the resulting file - what file extension does it have?

I must admit I am a bit confused as to what you are describing.

When you say that you open it and get a picture holder screen, is that before or after you have published the site?

What is the URL of your published site so that we can check out what you mean?

Hi Joyce,

Saving a word document that contains images as an html file and trying to use it as a web page will not work. The reason being that the images are not actually uploaded (just the links to the images). To fix it fo the following:
(1) In MS Word choose File->Save as web page
(2) In the 'Save As Type' combobox choose 'Web Page(*.htm;*.html)
(3) You will see that another folder has also been created. It will be the name of your word document followed by "_files".
(4) Upload (FTP) your newly created webpage together with your "_files" folder.

The best way to do it will be to open the word document. Copy each scanned image and paste it into
Paint (Start->Programs->Accessories->Paint). In Paint click on File->Save As, enter a name of the file,
and choose 'JPEG' from the 'Save As Type' Combo box. Click Save.
Then individually upload the jpeg images, that you saved, to your web server.
This way the images can be uploaded using Synthasite!
