:)Hello, I am sorry to bother all you knowledgable people but i am just learning Dreamweaver technology! I have been constructing a page consisting of a table of cells. In each cell on the left are small images which i would like to link to enlarge and display in the bigger cell on the right. What is the term to look up for this?, is it a form of anchor link?..and would it be in layers to allow each image to be stored on top of each other until the thumbnail is clicked?...or indeed am I completely off track??? could someone give me some guidance.
Many Many Thanks

It's called disjointed rollover and you use DW's swap image function to do it:

Thank you, I did that tutorial but i found it did not instruct me in how to link the thumbnailto an enlarged image on the same page (basically in a larger cell to the right of the thumbnail...am I being a bit thick..am so sorry.
Thanks

:-) yes the tutorial will tell you this. The idea with disjointed rollover is that when you mouseover one image, another image changes. And that's exactly what you're looking for.
