    CSS image gallery tweaking

    hey! so i started a css image gallery.

    i tried creating separate div classes for each photo so i can position them differently. when i tried it with the first one (400x400 image) all the other photos go below that photo but they all continue to align left. i want them to be closer together (all centered) and then fit together like a jigsaw puzzle. I viewed this on safari.

    any tips/suggestions/tutorials you could recommend. i mean i've read a lot of them but i'm not quite certain how to put it all together. any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated, thanks!!

    Hello catkustes,
    You are wrapping each image in it's own div and you don't need to.
    .image1 holds your first image and is not styled at all.
    .img's hold your other 3 images and those divs are floated left, which is exactly what they're doing.

    Lots of other problems with the basic layout of your document as well. See the links about validation in my signature line, they can help you with that.

    Maybe this will give you some ideas -
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html lang="en">
    <head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8" />
    <title>Sincerely Curious</title>
    <style type="text/css">
    html, body {
    	margin: 0;
    	background: #fff;
    	font: 100% "Times New Roman", Times, serif;
    	color: #635149;
    }
    ul#navigation {
    	line-height: 35px;
    	width: 100%;
    	margin: 0;
    	padding: 10px 0;
    	position: fixed;
    	top: 0;
    	color: #ffffff;
    	-webkit-box-shadow: 0px 0px 8px 0px #000000;
    	-moz-box-shadow: 0px 0px 8px 0px #000000;
    	box-shadow: 0px 0px 8px 0px #000000;
    	background: #635149;
    	text-align: center;
    	color: rgba(1, 1, 1, 0.8);
    }
    ul#navigation li {
    	display: inline-block;
    	list-style: none;
    }
    	ul#navigation li a {
    		padding: 0 15px;

    		font-size: 14px;
    		font-family: "baskerville";
    		color: #fff;
    		text-decoration: none;
    	}
    	ul#navigation li a:hover {color: #ccc;}
    #container {
    	width: 840px;
    	margin: 60px auto;	
    	padding: 20px 20px 1000px;
    	background: #fff;
    	box-shadow: 0 0 20px #8493A6;

    Also, when posting code in the forum, please use the code tags, &#91;code&#93;&#91;/code&#93; - available with the # button in the post edit window.
    This will wrap your code in a scroll box which greatly helps the readability of your post.
