Just a simple :hover over thumbnail images to give a full size view of each photograph. With all but Opera you can also click the thumbnails to retain the image on the screen. Text can be added at the bottom of each picture.

Ideal for photograph albums.

Thanks to Simon Pole for supplying the images used in this demonstration.

Updated 17th September 2004

By popular demand I have changed this demonstration to show two rows of thumbnails and a default image.

Updated 3rd May 2006

I have changed this demonstration to show how portrait and landscape images can be combined, and to make the active/focus state more reliable in Internet Explorer.

Updated 18th February 2009

Revised and simplified styling using the latest CSS techniques for displaying the full size images.

Updated 24th September 2009

Updated to stop the flicker when moving between thumbnails when a thumbnail has been clicked to hold an image on screen. Now setup to show that it works in IE8.
