jSquares – Image Grid that Pops Up Image & Description

Posted · Category: GPL License, MIT License, Popup

jSquares is a jQuery plugin that pops up an image and a description in an overlay on hover. It is basically identical to the image grid found on www.ted.com. There are some parameters can be added when you call jSquares, e.g. caption size, opacity of the images, shuffle speed and etc. It works like a charm in IE6+, FF 3+, Safari 3+ and Opera 10.


Requirements: jQuery Framework

  • Not too bad. I guess that could be used for portfolios or photo websites. Wasn’t happy with the initial play with it.. i found it a bit jerky… but if I tweak some of the settings I might be able to get it to the point where I am happy :)

  • really nice thank you

    Hi, for a jQuerry component, this one is very good. I would like to display the large image on mouse click and on mouse over to expand the image a little bit. Here you can see what I mean: http://www.flashxml.net/image-grid.html. Is this possible with jSquares?
