I've created an image gallery with colorbox and views like this tutorial. First image of the album is a thumbnail the others are content. So I want to display the thumbnail, when I click the thumbnail only show the other pictures except the thumbnail.


I'v followed this tutorial excactly.

So far so good, but when I click my thumbnail the colorbox opens and shows my thumbnail and all the other images. The settings are the same as the video.

Can someone help me to solve my problem?
