The Thumbnails component allows an author to create a list of images. Thumbnails can be either 85px or 140px wide. Thumbnails can either link to another page or website or open a larger version of the image in a zoomed in format.
Note: When linking to the larger version of an image be sure to add the larger size to the Thumbnail component. The component will resize the image to one of the pre-defined sizes.
Standard 85 x 85 size
Larger 140 x 140 size
Thumbnails with labels
Thumbnail Style: Either "With ColorBox" or "With Links", ColorBox links the image to a larger version of the image. "With Links" allows the image to be clickable to another page or website.

Show Labels: Displays the value of the "Text" field beneath each thumbnail
Text: The text associated with the image, 75 characters max.
Alternative Text: Text used in the "alt" attribute of the image. This is used by people with visual impairments who use screen readers to browse the web.
