I am trying to put an image slide show on my website. But they are small and scrolling. I want to make it so the viewer can click the picture then it opens up in a new window as a bigger size. How would I do that?

Do you mean something like lightbox? If so, you can google that term and find several alternatives as well.

Kinda, just imagine a picture... Click on the picture. Then it opens a link in a new window. Then jus X out to keep looking.

My slide show is being done with a marquee. My site is very basic.

I think this can be done just like this kinda.

<a href="URL OF LINK.htm"> <img src="URL OF GRAPHIC" border=0></a>

But opens in new window instead.

Code: [ Select ]
<a href="URL OF LINK.htm" target="_blank"> <img src="URL OF GRAPHIC" border=0></a>


Ahh, ok, going for simple then. Note the target attribute ;) That should do it.

Code: [ Select ]
<a href="URL OF LINK.htm" target="_blank"> <img src="URL OF GRAPHIC" border=0 height="100" width="100"></a>


Measurement is in pixels
