[Pro] Portfolio with rearranging boxes

Hi, I’m trying to make a website similar to what cargo-collective is doing.
I have a bunch of pictures and movies I want to showcase, sofar I have arranged all the thumbnails with rollovers as inline items. that way they rearrange to fill the browser window no matter what size it is.

Now I’m looking for a way to click on my thumbnail and a new window opens, either on top or inline with the thumbnails. In the new window I need to be able to put images, text and Vimeo. I have tried the show/hide layer action, however that does not work when you leave a video-site while it is still running because the audio is still running.
Slideshow and carousel are not what I am looking for.

I know it’s a difficult question - for me :wink: … but maybe someone out there has an idea?
Thank You,
s.zette

Try ScriptyLightbox (if you like the page to dim out and focus the
large image) or ScriptLightbox2 if you don’t (and you worry about
iPhones and QuickTime movies).

Thank you Walter, I will try your actions, can’t do it right away though, this is a side project.
Dimming sounds good, but it is more important that it works with Iphone and I need to be able to display text together with video and images.
I’ll post again when I had a chance to try it.
thanks again,
