Thumbnails are linking to bigger pictures but... :-( - Macromedia Dreamweaver

On my web page [url]http://www.frenchberliner.com/BERLIN%20PAGE/The%20new%20Berlin%20page.htm[/url] I use thumbnails to open the pictures in a new window! I really don't find practical the fact that you must close each window before you wanna see a new picture...I set all the windows to the exact size of each picture but now I would like to know if there's a way to open one single window wich will adapt its size all the images! Thanx :-)...

    1) Normally, it's the user's browser preferences that decides whether to
    re-use a pop-up window or to create a new. But I think there's a
    javascript that can help you control that from the parent window.
    Unfortunately, I haven't a clue about javascript, and until someone more
    knowledgeable jumps in, I can only point you to e.g. [url]www.hotscripts.com[/url]
    for a look.

    2) It's actually impossible to make a window fit an image exactly and
    make it work in all browsers and on all platforms. The "Open Picture
    Window Fever! " ([url]http://www.dreamweaverfever.com/grow/[/url]) extension will
    get you close to it, but I don't think it'll take you all the way. It'll
    still show some background of the page in some browsers. Another way
    might be to manually place the image as background image on a page, but
    that, too, will be cut off in some browsers....

    3) If you're on Mac, I strongly suggest you'll take a look at a photo
    album creator called WebPics (shareware). It's one of the absolute best
    solutions I've seen, with several options to change the look of the
    album. If you like, you can also add your own stylesheet to generate an
    even more customized design. The app is found at e.g. [url]www.versiontracker.com[/url]
