scotto Posted September 20, 2006 Share Posted September 20, 2006 I want to display thumbnails of photos in a web page, and these will be links to the full sized photos.I can create actual 100px-75px images to display as thumbnails in the links, or I can use the width and height attributes in my img tag, and just have a single image file on the server. For example:first method: <a href="myphoto.jpg"><img src="myphotothumbnail.jpg" /></a>second method: <a href="myphoto.jpg"><img src="myphoto.jpg" width="100" /></a>The former would only download a small fill, say 1 or 2k. But what about the latter approach? Does it download the full image, and then shrink it, or does that happen before the image is downloaded?Scott Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
