Organizing Pictures with Thumbnails

To minimize download time for large pictures, it’s common practice to display a small preview picture (a thumbnail) on the Web page a visitor would first encounter, and display the full-size picture only if the visitor clicks the thumbnail. This gives the Web visitor the choice of whether to view a larger file, without having to wait to download it first. Thumbnails are very popular on Web pages that display a series of pictures the Web visitor can select because:

  • The thumbnails download much faster than the full-sized pictures.

  • The thumbnails present more options at a glance than are possible with full-sized pictures.
