Missing graphics in WORD.....

By D.H. Cesare ·
Using Word I created a document with half a dozen animated GIFs and a background MIDI file. I saved the document as a Web Page (.htm). When I opened the file it played just as I had intended, with the animations and the background sound, but when I emailed it, there were only red X's where the animations should have been. The background sound did work.
What happened to the animations, and how do I fix the problem?
Thank you.

Images are not usually embedded

by Deadly Ernest In reply to Missing graphics in WORD. ...

Usually images are embedded in a word document but web pages are different.

The general rule with a web page is that images are stored seperately and called by the web page code. When you sent the page off you sent the web page code and not the images, usually you would have to have attached the images seperately.

When doing this it is better to upload the page to your web site and then send friends the URL for them to view direct and download if they wish, also allows shorter e-mails for doing this.
