Hello, great CSS work! Is there any insight you might have on making this photo gallery work in Netscape6+ as well as Opera7+? The image pop-up seems to be posisioning off 0 0, instead of the a:link element like the rest of the popular browsers. Thanks Stu!

Mr Nicholls,

Thanks for a great tutorial. Not only was this my first venture into CSS but you have made an old man very happy. I now have the tools to make my family photos available to my family who are dispersed all over the world.

The web could do with more generous people like you.

Hi Stu-

I absolutely love this gallery. Doing sites for photographers and designers, I've been searching high and low for something just like this.

I am not, by any means, very knowledgable when it comes to CSS. However, I managed to follow your tutorial and get everything working perfectly.

I would like to add the feature that allows the larger image to stay displayed when the thumbnail is clicked, but this isn't in the tutorial. And, since I'm not terribly savvy with CSS I can't find what I need to put in my code to make it work.

Might you be able to post a quick answer for me?

Many thanks,
Jeff

thank you for this site, i learn so much from it.

i'm seeing a problem which doesn't make sense to me.

i copied the source for the photography gallery into a text file...named it test.html.

i then modified exactly 2 lines:

line 27:

replaced spole/sph2 with graphics/Desert_Flower_2

and line 134

replaced spole/sph2 with graphics/Desert_Flower_2

and changed the alt and title to: Desert Flower 2

nothing more.

the picture used is exactly 500x500px.

now the funny part, the thumbnail is only showing the upper left corner of the picture 75x75px with no reduction...not a shrunken picture of the original as shows up in your demo. the large picture shows perfectly.

any ideas? have you ever heard anything like this before? i am used to using <img src=".." height="75px" width="75px" .... > to shrink the image. i can send the photo (zipped) if you would like. i'm working in firefox, but this doesn't work in ie7 either.

sure hope you have an idea.

thnx

Geof, the thumnail images are reduced size images that are placed in the background by the stylesheet. You cannot use the full size image and use css to reduce it for the background image. Background images are always the full size of the original and in your case just the upper left corner will show.

stu,

thanks for the quick update.

i was trying to avoid actually generating thumbnails if at all possible. i don't suppose you know of a way that i could generate them on the fly, so to speak.

i do like the gallery and will probably use the technique for a future site.

thanks again.

Hi

Great site. With your photo galleries, have you tried them with the filenames of the images/thumbnails being loaded from a database record(or records) rather than their URLs being pre-set in the code? Or do the images and thumbnails always have to be embedded in the page code?

Stu:-
Ken, there is no reason why this gallery shouldn't work using something like PHP and MySQL to add the image information to the code.
