This is a very good module and works VERY well for beginners. I like this because I can actually insert the pics into the modlue and not have to add any code to anything. Would love to be notified whenever this could be expanded to more pics. But this is definitely a gem. Love it

This looks really nice, but I am looking at it in IE7/win and when I move my cursor over the thumbnails it flickers really bad... If this could be fixed it would be great.
