Hi,

Using the dreamweaver photo gallery tool but was wondering on a couple of things. How would you create a picture gallery where instead of having the image load onto another page, loads on a designated page (in my case, an area I have seperated by a layer for image placement) - Urm, how do I go about this?

Secondly, is it possible to hide the thumbnails and have a back and foward arrow icons or similar?

All help appreicated...

that lightbox looks like a nice bit of kit

maybe there is a requirement for a dwc version

Mmmm...thinking..

Found this - looks rather nice http://www.dwuser.com/flashslideshow/v3/index.php

Yea, i know its flash but it does what i want, tho I would prefer to know how this is done in dreamweaver... if at all...

it would not be that difficult to do this in javascript

i could knock a demo up, minus the fancy transitions although adding them wouldnt be that difficult

it would give you an idea of how it works

If that wouldnt be a problem with the demo, that would be great. Only effect I would want is fading in and out between pic change...

Oh, and at 5USD cheaper, slideshowpro also looks pretty good...
