My optional image thumbnails for a product line up vertically, even if I resize. Is there a way to make them line up horizontally under the main image?

Which theme are you using?:)

Hey... I'm using a custom theme. In Designer I can see how to re-size the thumbnails but not how to reposition their layout.

I wonder if one of your settings is forcing them to be that way.

So you are saying that they should lie horizontal? Because I've seen other store examples where they were stacked vertically as well. The image size (in Designer) is set at a width of 333 and the thumbnail is less than half that at 160. I can see where the thumbnail size might need to be less than half the width of the main image for two of them to lay side by side. Do I need to make the thumbs even smaller in width?

I'm not saying they should. I don't know as I don't know what you have done or which theme you started with.:)

OK... that's it. Funny... the thumbs need to be 159 pixels wide or less in my case! There must be padding involved that is eating up some space. Hey... while I got ya... and maybe this question should be moved, but I noticed that even though Creator makes copies of your images when you import them, only the thumbnails are physically re-sized. The larger displayed images are the same size as the originals but simply scaled on the screen. This is a big waste of bandwidth and slows down publishing. It looks like 418 pixels is the actual max height of a displayed image and the width is variable up to around 900 pixels. Does that sound about right? So really imported images could be sized to a max height of 418 to lighten the store....? Thanks.

I think it's 400px if I remember correctly. I remember messing with that same thing with somebody else.

Thanks but... when I examine the online code (right click, info in Firefox or use Firebug) it shows me the height is 418. Not much difference, but I wouldn't want the image to be screen enlarged at all. Better to shrink or best to have an identical screen display size than to enlarge. I know I'm beating this up and I suppose I have my answer. I do believe however that this is something very basic that should be addressed in the PDF instructions.
I moved this question to the proper forum here, BTW, to help future searches:
