Hello LynnB

To create clickable thumbnails on your site, please follow these steps.

1. Upload the thumbnails (these are the small versions of your pictures) and the corresponding full-sized photos into the File Manager.
2. Drag and drop a text widget on to your page and add the thumbnails by clicking on the "Insert Image" icon in the Text Editing toolbar (the one with the green tree).
3. Click on the "Add Page" button. Name it something logical like "photo1" and be sure that the "Show in Navigation" box is NOT checked. Your new and empty page will load up ready for you to add the corresponding photograph.
4. To make the thumbnail link to the full sized image, click on "choose a link" in the "Properties" sidebar and the link editor will open up. It will allow you to create a link to the relevant page. Browse for the page you want and click "Ok".
5. Save and Update your site so that your changes will be reflected on your live site.

Alternatively, you could use Flickr Lightbox. The Flickr Lightbox widget allows you to quickly and easily create a slick photo gallery with thumbnails that link to the larger images in your Flickr photostream. For more information on adding Flickr to your site, please click on this link: Flickr galleries.
