1) Script Title: PHP Photo Album script

2) Script URL (on DD): www.calumogg.co.uk/test

3) Describe problem:
Hi all, I was looking for a new photo album for m site and liked the look of the PHP one since it loads it all automatically, so I had a play and managed to get it working with the Lightbox script, but there are two things that I cant manage to do and have had a look on the forum but cant find any answers, please just post a link if I have missed it though.
Firstly I would like the photos to be displayed in the middle of the page.
Secondly is there a way the photos can be added into a table.

Below is the code I am working with:

.inputc {font-size: 8pt;}

Hmm... seems because the script uses a framework the tables may be impossible, but to make it align center replace the following line:

document.write('<div id="slide'+curimage+'" class="slideshow" align="center">'+buildimage(curimage)+'</div>')
Or change the slideshow class in your CSS file adding "text-align:center".

Thanks for the reply I tired the methods said, and they didnt work, I have tried some other stuff on it e.g playing with this line and removing the style but leaving the <br/>

document.write('<br style="clear: left" />')
but when this is removed it changes the layout of the pictures so they are not 4x5
Any other ideas?
