Hi, I would like to create a page of images where each image represents a gallery that produces an overlaid view of it when clicked on. I have searched on here and found some ideas but I would like suggestions as to the best way to approach this. The idea is that the page itself will be a portfolio of projects and each gallery will display all the images for that project.

Hi leonglass

"an overlaid view of it when clicked on" ... do you mean that if you click on an image, a larger version of that image will appear in a lightbox?

Yes so each portfolio (image) on the original page is clicked on and then the gallery itself is shown in a lightbox way. So the original image is a placeholder for the gallery and lightbox (is that the best one?) allows scrolling through them all.

you will need to generate a view with the views.module to display the "gallery" page.

lightbox is an option but there is also the colorbox.module.

I found and followed a tutorial to achieve this and it was very good.
