CSS gallery

Hi all,

Can somebody help me this one http://m5designstudio.com/2010/css/simple-css-gallery-image-text-rollover/.

I like a holder/default image instead of the white blank space, thumbnail pictures moved to the bottom with 14 spaces for images in two rows.

Same images can be used for all the spaces.

Thanks,

Ilyas

Open in new window

The trick is to create a class called .first and give it to the first span: the only difference with the span rules is the visibility and the left properties.

I didn't adjut the container width to the image linked, but I'm sure you don't need help for this :-)

Cheers
