Hot Lightbox module will do the rest for you. What actually it does?

The module utomatically creates thumbnail images and save them in /thumbs subdirectory of your directory with images. You select the thumbnail images width and height in the module propertie. Also, you can select quality of the thumbnail images. The module will also create a Lightbox slide show. Click on any thumbnail image will open a larger image in the Lightbox pop-up. User can browse images (prev/next) in the pop-up while the rest of the website area will be faded out. Click on any point outside of the Lightbox slide show will bring the website back.

An Example

The row with thumbnail images located above is created by Hot Lightbox. In this example, we used module width value of 1000px and height value of 95px. The thumbnail images height is set to 90px, with gray color border of 3px. The thumbnail quality is set to 80. You can change any of these parameters easily!
