So I put the random Image generator on our frontpage for a splash of color, but I have a question.  Is there a way to show just thumbnails of teh images?  WE've got a couple that when they get selected by the randomizer they take up the whole screen, but if I resize the image they are almost too small in the gallery too.

Can you share a link of your site please? And what size thumb nail are you hoping to get?

Oops, sorry.  Shockfront.guildportal.com

I've got a couple images set at I think 440x200 something that seem to work well on the frontpage, but then they are too small in teh gallery.  I'd like to be able to click on the image on the frontpage to see it in full size too.

Hi Phewmite!

I was thinking maybe just use the thumbnails in the image gallery and apply this script to make a larger view popup when you click on the image.

I tried adding your code from your test site for the random image slideshow to our site.  I copied everything into a freeform on the homepage, changing only the picture locations, and all it showed was the code itself when I refreshed.  What am I doing wrong?

Looks good!

Now you can add more images and maybe adjust the color to match your site (if you want)
