REPLACE THE GALLERY PICTURES: | Click for more details | Thumbnail Help
The best way to setup the pictures in the gallery is not to actually edit the HTML pages and change the pictures on each individual page. The fastest way is to simply replace the pictures in the "gallery" folder with your own by overwriting the files that are in there now and using the same generic names.
In the "gallery" folder, replace the 36 "Fgallery" pictures with full size photos. Replace the 36 "gallery" pictures with your thumbnails. The thumbnails are now 70 x 47 pixels but you can make them any size that you prefer. Full sized "Fgallery?.jpg" images are now 500 x 333 pixels.
See options below in this document for info on replacing the other template images.

You will find all pictures in the "picts" folder.
