Brad,
I tried using the columns you recommended and they work great for most uploads. I don't know what's wrong. I've got two problems: one is the margin on the is pushed out of line which leads me to believe the photos are too wide. Second is some photos are larger than others even though their proportions are similar. What do I need to do to get everything line up?

Good news and bad news:

Good news: You *almost* did this perfectly. You had one row where you inserted a 4th photo, and you had another row where you inserted two photos into the same cell. Other than those 2 things you nailed this. those 2 things were the reason the page was blowing out though.

Bad news: While I was in there I moved the two misplaced photos to somewhere they would fit. But that's most likley not where you want them. So you'll need to cut and paste photos around your layout until you've got everything just right. The final bit of bad news is your photos are not the same size because you didn't create them at the same size. If you want uniformity across photos, you need to scan and crop them all at exactly the same size. If you don't then you're going to get varying sizes. There's only one way to fix this, and that would be to recrop all of your images to be the same width and height and upload them again.

Can I ask you how you set up your pictures in columns, what program did you use and how did you upload them on to your website?

How can I set this up so that I too can have a link to pictures like Judith?

Yolanda,

What you want to do is go into edit mode for any Customizable Link page, and then click on the table icon. Insert a table 3 columns wide x as many rows as you need. And then click inside of each cell, click the yellow "image icon" and upload your images. The table creates a nice framework to hold your photo layout together.

Just tried it and works great, however, when I active the link and review my work I see a border, how do I remove the border. I've tried properties and borders are not an option?

Left click on your table border to select your entire table. And then up in the toolbar click the table icon again. This will take you back into table edit mode, where you can select your border size (set it at 0 obviously). You can also right click on your table border and from the flyout go into Table Properties -- just another way of getting to the same place.
