Display a Collection of Images Without Modal Window

Posted · Category: Gallery, GPL License

We have mentioned jQuery.popeye last year. Now jQuery.popeye 2.0 is released! It is an advanced image gallery script built on the JavaScript library jQuery. Use it to save space when displaying a collection of images and offer your users a nice and elegant way to show a big version of your images without leaving the page flow.

It was designed as an alternative to the often-seen JavaScript image lightbox. What they all have in common: they employ a modal window to display the large images, thus disrupting the workflow of the user interacting with a webpage.

jQuery.popeye 2.0 takes a different approach: not only allows it for browsing all thumbnails as well as the large images in a single image space, it also repects the page flow and stays anchored and rooted in the webpage at all times, thus giving a less disruptive user experience than modal windows.

Piecemaker – 3D Image Slider Uses Tweener Engine

Posted · Category: Gallery, License Free

We were all amazed by CU3ER which is a 3D Transitions Image Slider in Flash. We were particularly fascinated by the effect of slicing an image up to pieces, turning the elements and recreating a new image from it.

From that day on, Björn Crüger was thinking about creating a gallery concentrating on such an effect and playing with it. With just a few variables this effect becomes extremely versatile. The Piecemaker uses the mighty Tweener engine from Caurina, which makes it support plenty of tween types for the transitions, such as Cubic, Bounce or Elastic.

Beside the transition type you can also customize tweening time, tweening delay as well as the movement of the cubes while tweening in terms of position on the z axis and positions to each other. With Piecemaker you can make the cubes move towards the screen or away from it and let the whole gallery expand while tweening. This provides you with a lot of possibilities customize the gallery.

Designing and coding a sponsors page is part of the developer’s life. It, however, follows different rules than those for the other pages of the site.

TutorialZine has written a tutorial about how to create a Sponsor Flip Wall using PHP, CSS and jQuery with the jQuery Flip plug-in, to do just that. The resulting code can be used to showcase your sponsors, clients or portfolio projects as well.

jPhotoGrid – Zoomable jQuery Image Gallery

Posted · Category: Gallery, MIT License

jPhotoGrid takes a simple list of images and captions and turns it into a grid of photos that can be explored and zoomed. Nearly all of the styling for this plugin is done in css. The trick is to layout the grid by floating the list items. The first thing the plugin will then do, is convert these all to absolutely positioned. This is what allows the plugin to zoom in on an individual image and then return it to its place.

The javascript is easy enough to set up.  It needs to know the sizing of the thumbnails as well as the sizing and positioning of the zoomed image.  This is how the plugin is able to zoom and restore each of the images.  Note that you can also change the active and selected classes by setting them using the ‘activeClass’ and ‘selectedClass’ options.

YoxView – A Free jQuery Image Viewer Plugin

Posted · Category: Gallery, MIT License

YoxView is a free image viewer for websites. It’s written in javascript using jQuery and is available as a jQuery plugin. YoxView is inspired by Lokesh Dhakar’s Lightbox. Like it, YoxView displays images above the website’s content, as a separate layer.

Users always see the whole image, even on small screen resolutions or resized windows. Images smaller than the browser’s window are displayed at their original size, larger images are resized to fit. Images are loaded in the background, to improve the viewer’s performance and shorten wait times for users. Forward caching continues while viewing images.

Automatic Image Rotator with CSS and jQuery

Posted · Category: Gallery, License Free

With the release of the iPad and its lack of support for flash, it has stirred up a lot of debates regarding the future of flash. With this in mind, SohTanaka believes it is wise to build simple widgets like the image slider using HTML / CSS / Javascript, and leave more interactive applications for flash if needed.

Therefore, SohTanaka has built an Automatic Image Slider with CSS and jQuery. This html based image slider will have its benefits with SEO and will also degrade gracefully for those without Javascript enabled.

jQuery PhotoShoot Plugin Simulates Camera-like Effect

Posted · Category: Gallery, MIT License

The jQuery PhotoShoot Plugin gives you the ability to convert any div on your web page into a photo shooting stage simulating a camera-like feel. Using this plug-in, we give visitors the ability to take shots of the background image.

Each time you click the area, a new shot is added to the slide div with a negative margin to the right. After this an animation starts, which slides it in view and pushes the other shots to the left, hiding the leftmost one. You can freely use the techniques and build upon the code. There are many possible uses especially in navigation systems and promotional sites.
