    Hi there,

    Insert the image to the area you want it
    right click
    edit tag <img>
    this brings up a new window with your picture details in it.
    Select the width or high that you want the thumbnail to be and then click on
    the calculator button on the right hand side.
    This automatically recalculates the image in the correct ratio.

    Hope that helps

    That's a horrible solution as the quality of the resizing is very poor, and
    the images are all still at their full filesize. That would make the page
    very slow to download, and pretty much defeat the whole point of using a
    thumbnail gallery.

    It's much better to resize each image using a photo editing program,
    although it does take a while.

    Hi,
    you can only do it creating a copy of the image and resizing using a image
    editor such as fireworks or photoshop.
    Resizing in dreamwaver only forces your large image to be display in a
    different size, it will therefore look blury and will keep its original virtual
    size.
    Hope this helps
