Matt Allington tries to solve the converse of an easy problem:

My idea was that I would load school photos and also the reunion photos onto the one page.  The user can then click on a slicer with someone’s name (or any other information about people) and “see” those people highlighted in the photo.  I started thinking that I could use the excellent Synoptic Panel from The Italians for this.  The only problem I could foresee was that Synoptic Panel is designed to provide shading over an image based on what was selected.  I wanted to shade/hide those people that were NOT selected.  Anyhow, I love a challenge.
