I have a blog that I've been posting to for over a year. I'm really happy with the look of it and I have gotten good feedback. Recently I started working at a bakery and they've been using my blog to sell cakes by showing the clients the kind of stuff that is possible.

However, my portfolio is really growing and it is crazy to have people look at page after page after page just to see the kind of work I do.


So.... I was thinking it would be nice to have a "gallery" page where I could show my favorites. Anyone have an idea of how I can put together a gallery page? I'd like it to have like 5 or more across and be able to have several rows. They click on the thumbnail and see the larger version...

I'm super frugal so I don't want to spend money! You knew there was a catch right? ha ha

Thanks in advance!!!

simplest -=--

create a TABLE -- say 5 or 6 columns across and as many rows as you like.

then in each cell of the table insert a thumbnail of a cake.

then up load each full size pick to a file folder on the server, noting its URL

go back to each thumbnail and add a hyperlink to the matching full size image -- set this link to open in a new window.

do this for all the pics.
