    opening new window


    This is a problem I've been puzzling over for a little while. I would like people to be able to click on images on my page, and open up a larger image in a new window. Seems simple enough.

    Problem is that I'm finding it hard to give my page a title. Someone suggested using the DW extension 'Advanced Window 3.09', suggesting that it might help. I get the window to open fine. Problem is that it dislays the path to the image i.e images/image1.jpg in the title bar. Hardly proffessional!

    Any ideas about how to get round this? Have thought of actually re-creating seperate ages for each image manually and then linking to them. By creating seperate html pages for each I can give the window a title. BUT..when I do this it means that all the other windows opened after all open up in teeny tiny browser windows like my image!

    I am new to website design and would really appreciate any help I could get. Keep it nice and simple please :-)

    If you open a image directly, the path is going to show in the titlte bar. How is that not professional. That is what the browser does by default. (I am also guessing W is dream weaver?)

    Look at the image preview examples here: http://dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/indexb.html

    May give you a better idea.
