Picnic

This thumbnail has a width of 190 pixels

Some browsers think 190 pixels wide means 'Adware'
These browsers will not display pictures 190 pixels wide
Is yours OK?


Mona Lisa

The Mona Lisa

This thumbnail has a width of 160 pixels
If you click on this thumbnail (the small picture)

Mona Lisa

The Mona Lisa

This thumbnail has a width of 160 pixels
If you click on this thumbnail
then the Mona Lisa will open in a separate, independent window
You should find that the 'Back' icon is greyed out in the new window
This window will still be available as a separate window
You can open another picture from this window

Hardy's Cottage

Hardy's Cottage

The technique I have used here differs from the Mona Lisa
Clicking on the thumbnail opens a completely new HTML document
This new document contains not only the picture
but also the text, "Hardy's Cottage"
A new HTML document such as this can contain much more
for example it can contain new links or even sound!
