Photo Gallery Thumbnail help

have just searched and read through 150 posts regarding the photogallery, and although it almost got answered, I wasn’t able to find a definitive answer to the question…

“How do we get rid of the arrows and use thumbnails to navigate the gallery?”

I have tried manipulating the button AS, but it doesn’t seem to work, and simply calling the image seems to loose the fade and preload.

can anyone help me with this please, or send me to the thread where it is answered?

Thank you very much in advance.
