The tracing image can be very handy for creating layouts. It is only visible in Design view, and not in the browser. In this example, the tracing image is set to a 35% opacity.
Another optional yet handy tool is a tracing image.
A tracing image is a mock-up of a Web page that you create in a graphics program. Once created, it can be used as a visual guide for re-creating or tracing the Web page design.
You or a graphic designer can make the image in any graphics program. Then, you set up the tracing image in FrontPage so that it appears in the background of the document window (in Design view), as shown in the illustration.
The tracing image can be a JPEG, GIF, PNG, WMF, or BMP image. Note that it does not appear when you view your site in a Web browser, only in FrontPage.
