Turning Thumbnails off is easy. I have attached images where you can see where to disable the Thumbnail view.

For Word 2003 : View menu > Thumbnail

Word 2003

For Word 2007: View menu > Show/Hide > Uncheck Thumbnail

Dear Ed Kashi,I am a journalist in Germany, wrntiig sometimes for a highly respected magazin for disabled people. It's so important that professional photographers and multimedia experts take care of issues which are often a little bit avoided by the public maybe because it's sometimes too hard to look at this reality. If you and your students manages that people look at such photos because you have found a language which creates compassion it's great.May I ask a request, please? Would you allow me to copy a photo (Nr. 5 with the grey car) for my blog in I'd love to illustrate an article about your project and a link to your website? I love Nr. 5 especially because this photo from Anastasia Rudenko shows one of most urgent wishes of many disabled people: mobility travelling, being independant.Thank you for attention and please, excuse my poor English.Best wishes, Brigitte
