HighSlide – Javascript Popup and Thumbnail Viewer

Posted · Category: Gallery, License Free, Popup

Highslide JS is an open source JavaScript software, offering a Web 2.0 approach to popup windows. It streamlines the use of thumbnail images and HTML popups on web pages. The library offers these features and advantages:

  • No plugins like Flash or Java required.
  • Popup blockers are no problem. The content expands within the active browser window.
  • Single click. After opening the image or HTML popup, the user can scroll further down or leave the page without closing it.
  • Compatibility and safe fallback. If the user has disabled JavaScript or the JavaScript fails in any way, the browser redirects directly to the image itself or to a fallback HTML page. This fallback is able to cope with most exceptions and incompatibilities.

Highslide is free for a personal website, a school site, your family’s photo album or a non-profit organisation. If you want to use Highslide for a commercial website, you need to pay for it.
