Is it possible to make a PDF file with clickable thumbnail-to-fullsize images?
We're publishing an ebook, and we'd like the user to be able to download an ebook file with inline thumbnails, that, when clicked upon, display the fullsize image. We don't want the thumbnails to link to an online version of the fullsize; we want it all included in the downloadable ebook file, so they can view the thumbnails and the fullsize images offline.
Anyway to do it all in one file, cross-platform, without requiring the user to download any new software?

Good news for you
I'm surprised there's no option to accommodate thumbnail=>fullsize pics in a single file.
Anyway there is another and better way to do it. I'm creating the PDF manual for one of my CMS and decided to try and implement shorcuts within the document (similar to what you want but from text to text instead of images) and I found a solution that suits my needs.
I'm using *SoftMaker Office*, an office suite that has built in PDF export. There is the option of creating hiperlinks and markers within the text, from page to page and this is preserved when you export the file to PDF. This way I can get links on the same document to the respective pages and paragraphs for my clients to navigate. Is a very nice piece of software with a nice price, search for it on the web.
** Mods: hope there is no problem mentioning the name of the software in this section of the forum. I think others could find it useful too.
