Hi Bee

I am just guessing here but it sound almost like you want a page with many different smaller images which individually link to larger ones. If this is the case then it's simple.

If you would like a gallery of clickable thumbnails with your own pics, this is what Monique suggested in another thread I only edited it a little for your situation...

1) Upload the thumbnails (smaller images) and larger images with the file manager (you will find it under the "site explorer")

2) Create new pages where full size versions of the images are displayed and insert them with a image widget. (key to remember which pages contain the correct photo so I would recommend naming them the same as the thumbnail you wish to link to it)

3) On the page you would like your gallery drop a text widget on your page and add the thumbnails by clicking on the "insert image" icon on the text editing toolbar. Do this for each of the images you wish to have appear. (You can space them however you like on the page)

4) To make the thumbnail link to the full sized image, click on the smaller image (it will show a border highlight) click on "choose a link" in the properties sidebar and link to the relevant page with the larger image. (or an external URL where the full sized image is hosted)

5)When you are done, remember to go to "Edit Menu" and drag all the pages with the full size images "out of the menu" so that they do not appear in the main menu of your site!

6) Update your site and then view your work for editing if need be...

Please post your sites URL so that we may see your site. We all love seeing the ideas, imagination and work of other site builders.

Happy site building

Ed

It is possible to have an image link open in a new window by editing the HTML. Here are the steps:
1) Add an image using the text widget (drop a text widget and click "insert image" on the text editing toolbar)
2) Click on the image and then click "insert link" on the text editing toolbar
3) Create your link to your chosen URL as normal
4) Then click "HTML" - the last icon on the text editing toolbar
5) You will see the code that looks like this for your image link (using SynthaSite's website and one of my own images as an example):

All you need to do is add in target="blank" as show below:
-->

Your image link will then open in a new tab or window, depending on what browser your visitor is using. Remember to remove at the end, this is there to stop Get Satisfaction from interpreting the code, and isn't part of the code.

Please note: current thinking in web usability circles is that links that open in a new window are a bad idea for a number of reasons. See: http://www.sitepoint.com/article/bewa..., for a great article by a leading expert in the field.
