Thanks for your reply Paul.

Can someone tell me how to set up a picture gallery in Freeway?
Please don’t assume that I know anything about how to navigate
Freeway. Plain english would be appreciated.
Thanks Steve. You can also, of course, do it by hand in Freeway,
although it’s long-winded compared to a ‘ready made’ gallery. Freeway
makes it easy to make a whole page of thumbnails: just draw a box for
the thumbnail, option-drag to copy it to the right of the one you
just drew, and continue until you have a row of boxes across the
page. Set the leftmost and rightmost ones to the distance in from
each border that you want, select them all, then go
Item>Distribute>Horizontally, which will space them all apart
equally. Then with them all still selected, go Item>Align and align
the tops or bottoms.
Then go Item>Duplicate and, in the resulting dialog, enter a vertical
offset of something larger than the height of the box; if the box is
150px hight, enter something like 200px. Also choose the number of
duplicates you want, say 5, and hit OK. Result: a page full of
identical aligned thumbnails. This is a great time-saver as, if you
applied any actions or effects to the initial box, that will be
included in all the copies.
Then select the first box, hit Apple-K to bring up the new link
dialog, and in that dialog, choose ‘New Page’, which in turn will
bring up the ‘New Page’ dialog. On the new page, draw a bigger box,
the size you want the picture to display when someone clicks on the
thumbnail. You can add ‘Previous’ and ‘Next’ links on that page too.
Hell of a lot of work to link everything, but it’s one, manual, way.
