How do you implement display of view items beside thumbnails of the items?

How do you implement an eBay-like dynamic display of view items beside thumbnails of the items from each doc? Is there a straightforward way to do it that I have missed? Embedded views cannot display images, DbLookup pulls in columns next to the embedded view does not pull RTFS. I can't find a straightforward way of implementing the dynamic diusplay. This need not be Web-enabled (although it would be nice to know).
DbLookup does not work in a view. We've done this only in Web-enabled views. It is easy to do. Create a column and use a formula for the display. The column formula looks something like this: "[img src="yourdb.nsf/view/" + @Text(@DocumentUniqueID) + "/$File/" + @AttachmentName + "" border=0]" This assumes that there is a single attachment. For multiple attachments you may want to wrap table tags around the formula above so that you get a nicely formatted page.
