Looks nice. :)

One area you could improve on is the 'thumb' images aren't actually 'thumb' images. They're larger images that you have instructed browsers to reduce in size (to a width of 340 pixels), the actual images are up to 848 pixels wide.

If you can produce genuine thumb images then you will speed up loading times (especially for people with dial-up connections).

Feel free to contact me if you require further advice (Messenger ID on profile).

Keep up the good work!

Hmm i did resize the images to about 440 x ??? and they did come out as different images for examplei saved the first image as h1.jpg and then made a smaller version being h1s.jpg as then the image comes out as 70Kb. Is this too large for a thumbnail?
EDIT: i have found a better programe than microsoft picture it express and the thumbnails have been updated to 11Kb

The smaller the thumbnails, the better. They should just serve the purpose of letting people know what image they can click on. When they click the thumbnail, then the image can be much larger.
