Does anyone know how to create a transparent, animated pop-up in front of the page like this? (click on one of the small images of the snake)

Would I be able to use something like this with a page created in Dreamweaver? I want to have a page with multiple thumbs that open like this when you click on them. But I need SIMPLE, easy to follow directions as I am pretty new at web design. I tried searching for a tutorial online, but I didn't know what to call this particular effect.

Hi starolson,

That exact sample is called "Lightbox JS 2"

http://www.huddletogether.com/projects/lightbox2/

There is a similar one called Lightview:

Both are very easy to install (just unzip some files and add include calls to the pages, then add a little bit of code to the thumbnail).

>> hank you! That is easy! I just didn't know to call it a lightbox

I don't think that's the "technical" name for the effect but that's what the developers call it.  If you view the source code from the link you gave me, you would see the javascript file that calls the effect and a quick Google would have showed you the links I sent.

Anyway, glad I could help.
