Hi Touleen

First of all, you will need to put your larger image on a new page.

Now go back to your original page with the smaller image:

If you added your thumbnail image through the image widget, then, you need to select your image (by clicking on it), then click on "Properties", and scroll down until you see "choose a link".



If you added your thumbnail image through a text editor, then again select your image and then click on the chain link.



Which ever method you used above, when you go to do your link, a box will pop up and you can enter your page url that contains your larger image.



Please let us know if you need further clarification. =)

As another alternative, you could do something like a Lightbox gallery. You can do this through the Flickr Lightbox gallery which is integrated with Yola. You'll need a Flickr account though. Here's tutorial on how to do this:http://www.yola.com/tutorials/photo-g...

Or, you can use the Lightbox gallery available through the Yola Code site. Look under "slideshows" and you'll see the option for Lightbox. Please read the rules first before grabbing the codes. http://yolacodes.yolasite.com

I suggest that you use Flickr Lightbox or use the Lightbox code on the Yola Code Site. I believe either one of these will meet your needs. Please let us know if you need further assistance in implementing one.

Hello Touleen,

You may want to try the Flickr Lightbox!

The Flickr Lightbox widget allows you to quickly and easily create a slick photo gallery with thumbnails that link to larger images. Here's how it is done:

1. In the Content sidebar in Yola, open the Photo Gallery folder.
2. Drag and drop a Flickr Lightbox widget onto your page.
3. In the properties sidebar enter your Flickr account email address (usually a Yahoo! address) in the email address field.
4. In the "Photo Count" field, enter the number of images you want to display.
5. In the "Search" field, enter the tags of the photos you want to pull from Flickr (make sure you have added tags to your Flickr photos or you will not get the desired result).
6. Specify how many columns you want for your photo gallery.
7. Click on the Image Size drop down menu to select small square, thumbnail or medium sized images.
8. Finally, choose between a "modern" or "plain" style for your photo gallery images.
9. Click the "Apply" button to update your photo gallery.

Now save and preview your page. You will have a gallery of clickable images. In the top right hand corner of the large view of the images, click the "next" button to view the next image in the gallery. Click the "Close" button when you are finished browsing through your gallery.

Note: If there are privacy settings on your Flickr photos the search will not be successful. The photos need to be publicly available for it to work.

We have a great tutorial for you to view, please click here: Photo Galleries.
