What i am getting is four images in my page without any button for the script i use to get a picture to click so that the image gets bigger.
I have attached the file hwere the script is working fine in simple html.
Hoping that someone will let me know the error and ways to make this working
thank you in advance

The code looks good. Make sure your jquery is not clashing with ss jquery which is for example included with SS navigation bar. Do you have firebug installed? Is it reporting any errors in the console? Is the jquery.js and the photorevealer.js got loaded correctly.

Note: if you have Chrome, it has a debugger built in, you can start it via Viev>Developer>Developer Tools. You can also use IEDeveloperToolbar on IE8, although this is a beast :)

Well if you're getting a Blank Page with no HTML at all you're either calling a bad control or you have a typo somewhere. When you dev/build does it finish?
