3) Describe problem: I do not have a problem. I would like help customizing this CSS code. Being fairly new to CSS in web design, I wanted to know if you need to create a folder called "gallerycontainer" and "thumbnail"? Or can you create your own folders and just customize the code to reflect your folders?

I have moved this post as it was in the wrong area. Thanks.

<Can you tell me if I am likely to encounter problems if using this script for 12 images on one page please?>
