    thumbnail links

    If I put an image on my site as a thumbnail with a link to the real image, is it enough to have it linked to the 'images' map of my site (in Frontpage), or do I have to link it to a new page with the full image on it?

    you could make a page with the image on if you wanted to make twice as much work for yourself. or just link to the image

    <a href="image.jpg">Full size</a>

    Its already an automatic link to a white page with the image on it. If I'm correct, then I just have to upload the map containing the images to the server and everything should be fine?

    i think for the best results create 2 images if you havent

    1) = thumbnail to whatever size you want.
    2) = regular image you resized to make thumbnail (careful overwriting original)

    then type:

    <a href="link to original image.jpg"><img src="thumbnail.jpg"></a>

    that should doit for you, if you got problems with the border being around it just add border="0" inside the a href tag (i think forget lol)

    you could use the same picture for thumbnail.. but it would be better if u modified that pciture to a smaller picture and use is as a thumbnail is because when u do that.. it will take lot less time to load the thumbnail... on the other hand... if u have the same big picture as thumbnail... even though it looks small on the page.. it will take longer to load..
