Here is a good tip that I haven't seen anywhere else. If the thumbnails in FrontPage photo galleries become grainy and washed out, you can open the Photo Gallery Properties dialog box and slightly change the size of the thumbnails. This seems to resample and restore them. Here's what you do:

  1. Right-click anywhere on the photo gallery in Normal view, and click Photo Gallery Properties on the shortcut menu.
  2. Under the Add button, select the thumbnail you want to resize.
  3. Make sure the Maintain aspect ratio box is checked.
  4. Under Thumbnail size, enter 110 in the Width box, and click OK.
  5. Repeat steps 2 through 4 for each thumbnail that needs restoring.


If you need to repeat this procedure on the thumbnails in a photo gallery, first you must return the width of each thumbnail to its original 100 pixels.

Editor's Note: To try this tip, you will need a Photo Gallery. To create one, click Web Components on the Insert menu. Then click Photo Gallery in the left pane, choose a Photo Gallery option (or layout), and click Finish. When the Photo Gallery Properties dialog box appears, click the Add button to add your photos.
