    Hi great tutorial I was wondering though how do you make it so that the thumbnails down the bottom become buttons that change the larger picture up the top to the picture’s thumbnail that you have selected? Would you make it so that it becomes a different page every time? Surely there is an easier way then that

    looking forward to your response, thanks!
