Depending on what you are using to create your webpage (since you didn't give much info on that) it will vary on how you put the images on your site. If you are writing your own code then you'd upload the image to the server your site is hosted on then insert the following code into the page you are working on.

Basic image code:
<img src="imagenamehere.gif">

Of course you'll want to change the file name inside the "" to whatever the file name of the image is.

Hope that makes sense, good luck with your site :)

Allrighty, try inserting this this for each image, make sure to edit the typeyourimagenamehere to whatever your file name is :)

<a href="typeyourimagenamehere.jpg">
<img src="typeyourimagenamehere.jpg" height="50" width="65" border="0"></a>

</a>- this is the piece of code that closes a link
Example:
<a href="http://www.linkurlhere.com">Link Name</a>


&nbsp;- this is what you use to insert a space (like if you need to insert more than one space in something...or if you have a table cell and need it to have something in it so it can be read properly by the browser but you don't want anything to actually appear in it...lots of other uses of course but that's one of 'em.)

<tr>,</tr>,<td>,</td>-these are all parts of a table
Here's an example of a very basic table.
<table border="1" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="5">

<tr>
<td>1</td>
<td>2</td>
</tr>

<tr>
<td>3</td>
<td>4</td>
</tr>

</table>


Individual code uses of each part is as follows:
<table> begins and ends the table, as you can see.
<tr> begins and ends every new Table Row (which is incidently what tr stands for...lol.
Look again at the table above; there are two rows in the table, thus there are two sets of <tr> tags.
<td> begins every cell, and stands for Table Data.
In this particular example there are four cells, and four sets of <td> tags.

That's the best way I can really explain it...hope it helps and I'm glad the thumbnail code worked out for ya...you should link me to your page so I can check out what you're workin so hard on ;)

bug's explanation is great...as a further knowledge transfer, here is a link to a good set of html tutorials, designed to familiarize you with the general construction of a web page.
