9. Photo Slider Tutorial

First we need to start off with some images. You’ll want these images to be thumbnails that also have a larger view available. In this tutorial I’m using a thumbnail size of 50×50 and a full view of 600×400. You can have any size for the “full view” but the thumbnails must all be the same size. We’ll start with 4 thumbnails.
