    Arrow Help make an image gallery

    Looking for some advice.

    I want to make an image gallery for a website, im a little stuck as to how to make it.

    What i want is a main page that has all the thumbnails on, each one of those would be a hot link to a popup window of a specific size ie 480x360 etc etc.
    Once that popup window is open id like to be able to have a basic navigation, ie next, previous and a counter of which pic you are viewing out of however many.

    Any ideas how to make such a thing, any resources you can point me towards would be most helpful.

    Thanks in advance

    What language are you writing it in?

    Image galleries are fairly simple things to create. It's just a bit of file system listing and thumbnail creation really. In fact probably the most brain work will go into the code that works out how to re-size and create a thumbnail

    Good 'ol ASP Classic

    Although the bit that resizes images to create the thumbnails was written in ASP.NET.

    I did mine in php using a directory scanning script, a thumbnail script (Good ol' GD library), and a few lines of code to glue them together, works pretty well
