Hi,

I work with images, so I would like to know if there is some way to put a small image and than it will enlarge when somebody clicks on it.

Hi there,

This is possible with Flickr. 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.

Hi carla lado b, You can see an example site as well as screenshots in the Photo Gallery Tutorial Kershnee linked above. Have you had a chance to check that out yet?

That link also gives alternative methods to try if you don't like the look of the Flickr Lightbox widget. :0)

there's also the option of creating two images. Put two of the same images in your file manager with a different name. One large and one small. You can resize images in paint and in picnik... I find paint does it better because picnic tends to make images blurry when you resize it. Use the small image on your website and link to the larger image. When they click on the smaller image, they'll see the larger image.

if you have Yola pro and want to play with javascript you can enter one javascrpti to a page and all image will enlarge.

You can get the code from http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicin...

It somewhat works and I have tried it on http://www.shoppealots.com/bass-leapi... The oval mirror one the top is the one I tried it on and seems to work but somewhat fussy. In the code from dynamicdrive you can adjust how large the image get. Gives you the choice to make different sizes.

I need to tell you something: I work with images, and full of details and so on. Than when I see all those nice small and sharp parts just invisible by the size, oh... :***
