    Enlarge image advice

    I have 40 thumbnail linked images that enlarge. What would be the best way to indicate that the thumbs enlarge. Im using lightbox for the gallerys. I want to make sure It's user friendly. I changed the title tag to "Enlarge" (now all the paintings are named Enlarge)Smart eh . I want the alt tags to to display the names correctly. Should I go with the "click here" links. Help!
    Thanks

    I added this code for a border and put an a:hover to turn It white. Works in FF and Opera but no inb IE.

    #wrapper #picturewrapper a img {
    border: 10px ridge #666666;
    }
    #wrapper #picturewrapper a:link img, #wrapper #picturewrapper a:visited img{
    border: 10px ridge #666666;
    }-->
    #wrapper #picturewrapper a:hover img {
    border: 10px ridge #FFFFFF;
    }

    Any Ideas for IE or is this not possible?
    Thanks

    personally on this i would just use a simple image swap if what i have in mind is what you aim to achieve.

    have a look at this

    (its pretty obvious which bit to look at once you get there)

    have a look at my source and post back if you have any problems

    Have you thought about a scrolling image system.
    I know flash albums can be problematic with access issues, but I have been trying out a sytem called XGem Slide Gallery
    You can name all your images and have clickable content information, the only problem is the coding does take a while. This gallery system is excellent if you want a slick album.

    This client has a artwork and framing gallery and wants thumbs about 150px w and and lots as space between. Images are 700w x500w. I might try swap image with the thumbs. Thanks for all the good advice.
