Decorate Your Images and Photos with CSS

Posted · Category: Gallery, Information

Nick La has made another great great tutorial for us. Nick La shows us how to decorate our images and photo galleries without editing the source images. The trick is very simple. All you need is an extra tag and apply a background image to create the overlaying effect. It is very easy and flexible with over 20 styles, from a simple image icon to a rounded corner to a masked layer (both decorative and complex). To change the look and feel, simply edit the CSS specifications of the span element. To show how flexible it is, Nick La has created 15 different styles as examples for us (notice the HTML markup is same).

FancyBox – jQuery Image Zomming Script

Posted · Category: Gallery, MIT License

FancyBox is similar to lightbox-like tools, but with kinda different image zooming script for those who want something fresh. It is powered by great javascript library – jQuery, tested with IE6, IE7, Firefox. It supports single or a group of images as other gallery scripts. Zooming in and out effects are customizable. CSS is seperated from js code to improve speed and customization. I really like the loading animation which is inside the thumbnail rather than in the center of the whole screen.

Galleria – Simple but Nice jQuery Image Gallery

Posted · Category: Gallery, GPL License

jQuery, jQuery, jQuery, jQuery again. There are lots of nice application written in jQuery. Galleria is a javascript image gallery written in jQuery. It loads the images one by one from an unordered list and displays thumbnails when each image is loaded. It will create thumbnails for you if you choose so, scaled or unscaled, centered and cropped inside a fixed thumbnail box defined by CSS. The core of Galleria lies in it’s smart preloading behaviour, snappiness and the fresh absence of obtrusive design elements. Use it as a foundation for your custom styled image gallery.


Above is a demonstration shows you some more advanced effects you can accomplish with the Galleria plugin. The history object is also active that you can click the back button in your browser and bookmark a page. The next and previous links are simple to create since the galleria object has two public functions for traversing the images in your list.

Requirements: jQuery Framework

Image Transition Manager with Scriptaculous and Prototype

Posted · Category: Gallery, License Free

The image transition manager is a javascript library based on scriptaculous and prototype. It supports several image transitions, such as fading, appearing, sliding, growing and shrinking. Because it uses the unobtrusive javascript technique, no inline javascript is needed and hyperlinks still function when javascript is disabled.

I think the script works really great, you can have 8 (more to come) image transition effects to spice up your site. However, I found it a bit slow to load the image first time. It would be much better if the script preloads all the images beforehand.


Requirements: Scriptaculous 1.7.3 beta and Prototypejs Framwork
