You could have an onclick in the image, onclick="showFullImage(this)" for example. The showFullImage function is like:
function showFullImage(Image)
  var sUrl = "<your url goes here";
  sUrl += "?image=" + encodeURIComponent(Image.src);
var oNewWindow = window.open(sUrl, "NewWin", "<feature list here>");
If you think ythe browser won't support encodeURIComponent then use the older escape function instead, or try both:
function encodePath(Data)
  if (window.encodeURIComponent)
    return encodeURIComponent(Data);

  return escape(Data);
