Hi all, I want to put a load of wedding photographs online, I have around 250. If I was to create a small thumbnail in Photoshop and use a lightbox (Lightbox 2) would the page take a long time to load - I'm unsure whether the larger images are also loaded when the page loads or called when the user clicks on a thumbnail. If this is the case that the page would take too long to load, I guess I would maybe need to dive into some AJAX. Any help would be appreciated

I believe lightbox only loads the image when you need it. IIRC (as its a long time since I used it) it finds the image from the href in the anchor around the thumbnail and then loads it only when clicked.
