1) Script Title: Carousel Slideshow 2

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/carousel2.htm

3) Describe problem: Is there any way possible to set the images in the Carousel Slideshow 2 to open full-sized on mouseover? I have them working perfectly to open in a new window when clicked on, but the customer whom I'm creating the slide-show for has requested to change this to a simple mouseover (preferably like the one in the Image w/ description tooltip).
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

you can add another jquery or javascript in the <img src=""> script, just take a look at this page

http://www.dynamicdrive.com/style/csslibrary/item/css-popup-image-viewer/P80/

the image will enlarge as a pop up, but it's look great i think.

Thanks for the reply, davelf!
What you suggested works great for "static" images on a page, but I can't seem to figure out how to incorporate this (or any other mouseover popup I found) into the Carousel 2 script.
Harry Armadillo originally posted the code for the Carousel 2 with the newly incorporated
lnk_base, lnk_targets, and lnk_attr parameters here http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?t=58814&page=2
and those work great to produce on-click pop-up windows with specific size and locaction.
But the links in this script are written as (for example)

images:['http://www.myURL.com/images/MyImage1TN.jpg',
'http://www.myUrl/images/MyImage1TN.jpg',
'http://www.myUrl/images/MyImage3TN.jpg',
etc '],

links: ['http://www.myURL.com/MyImage1.jpg',
'http://www.myURL.com/MyImage2.jpg',
'http://www.myURL.com/MyImage3.jpg',
etc '],

and any <a href=***> mouseover attribute I tried to include on either the image (thumbnail) or the links attributes caused the carousel to stop working.

Aw, man! Are all the really smart folks on vacation or something? There has got to
be a way to get mouse-over popups to work on this Carousel...or any other moving slideshow.
Anyone???....Please???
