This is brilliant, a photo gallery without flash or java and that will be acceptable to those still on dial up, in other words accessible for everyone, and you can display a large number of images on one page without worrying about the download time.

However! - This works in Firefox but IE still seems to preload the images, at least my example does - Am I missing something? Any advice would be most welcome.
Thanks for your inspirational ideas.

IE seems to download all the picutres on your example as well, not just mine by the way, I don't know if any one else encounters this.

David, IE does indeed load all the files but Firefox etc only load the background images when required. IE will display the thumbnails first then download the full size images.

Is there any way to prevent IE loading all the images so it behaves as Firefox does, conditional comments or anything?
I think this makes for a more pleasing experience as you don't have to wait as long for the page to download.
Am I being too fussy here? do most people have broadband nowadays so that size of pages is not not so important?

I like your photo gallery very much, just as David and Kike.
But ... I would like to see one of the big photos when startig the page
and as Kike I would like to maintain the comment text until I click in another thumbnail.
Could it be possible?
Here you can find my integration in a homepage:
Thank you for your help.

Have you included the 'common styling' which has all the images held as background url() ?

Hi Stu,
Just gotta say - love your work.
I have a request/quistion. I would like for all borwsers to have the same behavior as Opera. So that the images appear when I click the mouse, and it disappears when I let go. Would it be possible to make the gallery work in that way?

Jesper, unfortunately it cannot work this way in IE. FF etc can use :focus to achieve the same effect, but IE treats :active and :focus in the same way so the image will remain until a second click is made.
