Although this sounds like a relatively easy achievement, in addition to the actual mechanics of displaying the selected image, we'll also need to consider how to handle multiple selections. The following screenshot shows an example of what we'll end up with:

110 pixels for the thumbnails and
400 pixels for the large versions.
Create a new directory called
