How can I replace a large image with other large images triggered from small image icons, mouse-overs or whatever???

DOK
I'm creating an ad for eBay and want to keep the page condensed. I
have 6 images - different views of an antique lap steel guitar - that
need to show superb detail. I have cropped the images to take up a
full webpage width. However, I don't want to put all six images on
the page. I thought I could use icons as the trigger for displaying
the images one by one. I cropped the six images down to small (but
identifiable) icons.

Is there a way I put the first full sized image on the page and go
through all the other images by mouseover or clicking on the icons? I
just want to be able to replace the full size image with the others.

Another option would be to display ONLY the icons and, by mouseover or
single click, open the large images in a new window. Is that
possible?

I've tried to find info on this thru a Google search. But I don't
know what appropriate keywords to use. So I've run across a few days
of dead ends.

Hope you can give me some pointers. <TIA>

PS: any directions to specific tutorials on this 'trick' would be
most appreciated, also.

Thanks for any constructive info ...

You have no way of knowing the window size that a user is using.

Stop trying to reinvent the wheel, use eBay's default page layout. eBay
offers a mechanism to upload multiple alternate images that are
displayed as thumbnails. If the size of the images is large enough eBay
will add a "Supersize this picture?" javascript link beneath it.

How do you know what a "full webpage width" is?

I'm not 'trying to reinvent the wheel'.

Hey ... eBay does it. Is their 'default page' that difficult to
recreate (rather than 'reinvent')?

Sorry I asked such a perplexing question in this forum. I'll
certainly not bother you again.

As for the thumbnails thru eBay ... they cost. And I'm trying to
minimize the selling cost.

Never mind !

I assume it's quite easy for an experienced programmer but I'm not one of them :) I have a JavaScript code that: - displays multiple images (+40) in a single image placeholder on ONE page - pre-loads multiple images - on a click of a mouse changes to the next image - on a click of a mouse changes to the previous image

I have a WxPython app that displays images that are typically around 600x600 pixels. I use a wxStaticBitmap, which appears to work fine on Windows XP.

Hi I notice that in some cases, to get an icon, an object (for example a list view) uses an image list, in others (e.g. a form) the image is selected from the project resources, i.e. a file. As I have images that I'd like to use in both situations I would like to use the same method for each. Preferably, as I find importing images as resources as often as not crashes VS, I would like to work with an image list.
