Hello I am 13 year professional Graphic Designer using Illustrator and PShop. BUT i know nothing about webdesign. I am making my own website now and i am trying to look up the ?'s i have in Google and i usually find the answers as i go, but but i don't know what to call my next question.

I want to make some image thumbnails along the bottom of a page. And when you click them they change the picture in the box above or below it, all staying in the same page. OR even better they open up into a fancy little window like i found here

so my ? ... Is either one of these ways easily done with Dreamweaver. I am using Dreamweaver because i have the Adobe CS3 and CS5 Suites and i figured better to work with one i have than go looking for a new one that's easier to use.

any help email me

The effect at that site is sometimes called a "lightbox" (based on one of the JavaScript programs that implements the effect).
