Thanks for the help with the preloader. What I would also like to do is have just a small screen pop up containing an image not a full browser window. So that when thumbnails are enlarged a brand new page isn't opened.
you could consider using a div for that with 2 properties:
- visiblity: visible|none
- z-index: (anything greater than 20 or so)
then you can position it absolutely on the screen or relative to the current content (the latter can get tricky but is needed if you are going to have a page that scrolls) and then show/hide it based on user clicks...
that's a bit vague but with hope it points you in the right direction - if not then lemme know!
I'm still a rookie, self taught, so I don't really know how to use the above advise. It seems like it would be somewhat easy to have a simple window pop up like they have here when you click preview image for one of there images.
