I have a customer that would like to use your product however she needs to be able to have a link that shows the entire set of images and then be able to click on one and go into the slideshow at that image.
A: You can try not to use the thumbnails and add links to the main images.
Please, go to
uncheck "Show bullet navigation/Filmstrip" option.
To add link: select image by clicking and specify link in "Url" field.
