    Default Images questions Thumbs and Larger Newbie Question

    I've been reading around trying to get an understanding of this.

    I've read the How do I add multiple images to a product? in the tutorials secton.


    I've tried searching to the point of not really knowing what to search for anymore.

    Ok, now for my issue:


    How do I get my larger image to show when I click on the thumbnail. I renamed the large image with _LRG and uploaded to the same image folder.

    I am just working on getting images set now.

    I want to get this right before I make many images.

    The link to the only product I have loaded is at

    http://choice-home-decor.com/index.p...&products_id=1

    The only image I actually want to show on the page is the thumb image and I want to be able to click on the thumbnail and have the larger image show.

    Hope this makes sense.

    You have both images loaded in the /clocks directory. The large image should go in clocks/large. Or, you could install Image Handler from the downloads section and it will take care of this stuff without the need to create multiple sizes.
    The best way to learn is to try stuff. But, back it up first.

    Thanks Resco, another questions though.

    Would I need to leave my larger image with the _LRG or remove the _LRG in the /large folder?




    The only reason that I am resizing is to cut down on file sizes. The larger images are big files.

    How well does Image Handler resize? I tried just uploading images from my files for the products and they just didn't resize very well.

    You can do it either way, but leaving the _LRG helps to avoid confusion.

    Extremely well.

    I just realized something. It wouldn't be clocks/large. It would be large/clocks.

    It's a sweet mod. And the author wrote what is probably the best set of instructions ever.
