Creating a photo Album

P: n/a
Hi All

Using VB 2005

I have been tasked with creating simple Photo Album page on our local
intranet server that can display Thumbnails and then the full picture once
the thumbnail is clicked in a new window, if the full picture is open I
would like to be able to move forward or backwards through the pictures
without returning to the thumbnails.

My experience with ASP.net is very limited at this point so the learning
curve is steep.

Questions.
1. What would be the best way to create the thumbnail grid. Table,
Gridview....?
2. Is there a out of the box solution to this or do I need to create

All related advice and comments welcomed

Thanks in advance.

There are a few available on the web, free with source and commercial. I'm
looking for one also - I had been using nGallery which worked well, but now
I need one that is ASP.NET 2.0 and nGallery only works with ASP.NET 1.1.

If you want a starting point with code, get the Wrox book "ASP.NET 2.0
Instant Results" - there is code in the book for an album with explanation.
