A little bit of play...

Earlier today I saw a request by someone to show a photo gallery as thumbs where hovering over a thumb would pop up a larger version of the photo. Curiosity grabbed me, and I went looking for a way to do this. I found a sample page at That page included a link to a write-up, which of course I didn't discover until I'd looked at the code behind the page.

The result of my play is shown below. Hover over a thumb to see a (slightly) larger version.

Embed a buy link with your photo

SmugMug has recently added the ability to link directly to the shopping cart, allowing viewers to click from someplace outside of smug directly to the shopping cart.

Here's an example - click the photo (or the Buy this photo entry under the photo) to place the photo in the cart and allow selection of the media:

click to buy takes viewer directly to shopping cart

Or, in text:
Click here to buy this photo.

Click here to purchase a selection of photos from this gallery.
The buy link can be found by clicking Share... Get a link. To pick up a buy link for a specific photo, choose the Buy link on the Photo Links tab. To allow the viewer to select multiple photos from the gallery (in the shopping cart), pick up the link from the Batch buy entry on the Gallery Links tab.

Change size on mouseover

Hover over the photos in this post and they will change size from smaller to larger. Move the mouse again and the photo will return to the original size.

The html used to create the changing images on mouseover can be found on the page, in the file titled changeSizeOnMouseover.txt.
