There are heaps of image galleries out there but don't know which one is the best? I have searched through the Internet and I found these image galleries that come with a filmstrip (thumbnails). Most of the are pretty easy to implement, and if you want to create a custom jQuery script, no problems at all because some of them are presented in tutorials.
- TN3 Gallery TN3 Gallery is a full fledged HTML based customizable jQuery image gallery with slideshow, transitions and multiple album options. Compatible with all modern desktop and mobile browsers. Powered by jQuery.
- Custom jQuery Image Gallery with jCarousel
I created this tutorial last week, it's about create an image gallery from the robust jCarousel Plugin. If you want to create a custom image gallery, you will enjoy this post :)
- Image Gallery with Fancy Thumbnail Hover Effect
This tutorial has been on the internet for quite a while, but somehow I think it's still worth to mention because of the hover effect.
- Pikachoose jQuery Image Gallery
This is the version 3 of Pikachoose and proven more stable, less bugs and cross fading.
- Photo slider
This photo slider comes with a preloader. Not only that, it's the thumbnail section that makes it special. Click on the link to check out the rolling effect.
This is one of the popular image gallery around. However, it will be so much better if the thumbnail list is scrollable.
GalleryView aims to provide jQuery users with a flexible, attractive content gallery that is both easy to implement and a snap to customize. I like the thumbnail section, it has caption, carousel and an arrow, pretty much like the one I did in the tutorial but in horizontal.
- Full Screen Image Gallery
This is a good full screen image gallery that scale the image in the backgroun. Unfortunately, it's not open to public, but it's a good inspiration if you want to create one.
- Ad Gallery
A pretty nice gallery that has different transition to display the main image. Pretty standard, main display image with caption, thumbnails in carousel.
- jQuer Gallery Plugin
A little bit different compare to the rest, the filmstrip is slide from the bottom of the main image. The thumbnail section is pretty impressive. Thumb up for this one.
