Thumbnails with changing pictures

Last Modified: 2013-12-24
I am using MS Frontpage 2003 to develop my website. I would like to know if I could place a thumbnails with its picture display changing at all times. I have seen thumbnails behaving in this manner on few websites.
Please post your answer directly to this question (no link if you don't mind as they will not count).
Thank you in advance.

what do you mean by "it's picture display changing"? are you trying to change the image that's displayed? or the location of the thumbnail?

the easiest way to do the former is to create something like a .gif image or flash animation that animates the thumbnail


Yes, "its picture display changing" type of thumbnails (the reason is to tell the user that there are more than one product when clicking the thumbnails. I guess that means that I need how to create a .gif with changing pictures! Any idea?

I think, animated GIFs would be a good idea.

But, try to set various durations of pictures (frames) in the various thumbnails. If they were all equal, it would look like marching - all pictures would change in the same time!

If you want, you can send us addresses of pages where you have seen rows of thumbnails you like. Then we will understand your needs and wishes better :-))
