I'm trying to make a photo album like the one on adobe's spry sample photo album page here, http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/spry/demos/gallery/index.html

But I haven't been able to find any tutorials to do such a thing, so I've resorted to cutting and pasting code, which is a really bad idea for me since I'm new to web design and for me understanding java script is harder than understanding the female psyche.

At any rate, this is what I've been able to do so far for my wife's retail site: http://paxbaby.com/photoalbum.htm

If anybody feels ready and able to take on the challenge, I have 3 real problems I haven't been able to figure out: first, how to make the big pictures fade in and out like on Adobe's sample page; second, how to make the thumbnails grow and shrink in front, not behind, the other thumbnails, and third, how to make the thumbnails grow and shrink from their center point, not from their upper left corners.

I'd love it if anyone is willing to help me out with this -- and if you have any other pointers on my site there, I'm all ears!

I think you just need to start reading on SPRY and learn how it works. Once you know SPRY you can use it multiple ways to make galleries how you want them.
