    Is it really there?

    Level 7
      I am working on a web site where the original developer set the photos of
      students to be dynamic based on their student id number. When their photo is
      taken, it gets assigned the student id number, so it can be referenced, and
      put into a student photo directory.

      however, if the photo does not exist the area comes up with the missing
      photo 'x'. Is there a way to find out if the photo actually exists and, if
      not, put a alternate image in its place using cfif or another evaluation cf
      tag?

      Here is the way it is set currently:
      <IMG src="../../images/stuPhoto/#Right(People_code_id,9)#.jpg" width="100"
      height="100" alt="#first_name# #Last_Name#">

      I need to figure out a way to say

      <cfif photo exists>
      <IMG src="../../images/stuPhoto/#Right(People_code_id,9)#.jpg" width="100"
      height="100" alt="#first_name# #Last_Name#">
      <cfelse>
      <IMG src="../../images/stuPhoto/#nophoto.jpg" width="100" height="100"
      alt="#first_name# #Last_Name#">
      </cfif>
