I need my thumbnail links to open in a new window so that the users do not have to hit the back button to get back to the list of images.  Is there an easy way to do this with Dreamweaver?

in your links simply add a new attribute

<a href="bluh.html" target="_blank">Link</a>

so target="_blank" will do the Trick

in Drewamweaver i believe if you highlight link you can use the option "target".

You are correct that I can select the _blank in the "target" option.  That works great!  Thanks for that info.
One more step if you dont mind :), how can I make the new window open at a certain size instead of full size?

Sure for that you need to use javaScript

<a href="#" onClick="window.open('page.html','myWindow','width=500 height=500');return false">Hello</a>

so basicly add onClick even in your links and specifiy the width and height.
