I know this isn't exactly related to this forum, but i'm setting up a webpage at geocities where i can post pictures of my car. I was wondering if any of you know how to make a thumbnail gallery. I've searched and asked questions on geocities but got no help. I'm using pagebuilder to set up my page. I was told to just make the picture small (like by using adobe photoshop or something) and then put a clickable link on that picture. Well, when i made the picture small and saved it as a .jpg, it added a whole bunch of extra space to the picture that makes it way too big to put on my page. Even though i had cut out the extra space using adobe. If anyone could help me w/ this, then please do. I would really appreciate it. thanx

Thumbnail galery?

I use ACDSee, available at www.ACDSEE.Com

I tried their latest version but didn't like it so I went back to V3.1 (installation program saved locally).

With this program you save all the full sized graphics you want to one directory (folder), highlite all the files and open the HTML plug in. Then you enter the size you want the thumbnails to be, a title for the page, number of rows and colums on each page and hit go.

It creates thumbnails, puts them in tables, and links the thumbnail to the full sized graphic.

MPG files? It takes one frame from a second or so into the movie and uses it for the thumbnail. Slick.

Then you open the page in a composer and change it's properities. Text color, backgrround , etc.

Sounds like lots of work but it's a whole lot easier than making a page, resizing all the graphics, putting them in the page, then creating the links.

Only drawback is it will create only 64 or 68 rows.

As an example, I'm burning some CDs as gifts. Bunch of graphics from news groups. Going to send a copy to The Man Show so that ought to clue you into what the graphics are about.

I opened the directory with ~ 1500 JPGs. hit edit/select/all, opened the HTML plug in, and created thumbnails and 8 pages in less than a minute.

I think my Buddies are going to be happy, I think their wives are not going to be thrilled with me. But then, you never know.

Damn, I wish i would of known that sooner. I finished my webpage with pics of my car on it and it took me forever. I had to take the image shrink it, post it, create a link to it, save it, go back and close out the small pic, open up a full sized pic, post it to a whole new page, name it, blah, blah, blah...It was a whole lot more work than what it should have been. lol Thanx for the info. Check out my car at:

Those pics were taken during and right after my conversion to the 5.0 from the 2.3. thanx again.
