Alright, we all must admit it's important to know a few jquery galleries or sliders for our web projects. I have found a few new releases, well, they could have been in the wild for a while just that I haven't noticed them yet.

Personally, I will give Skitter jQuery a go for my next project because of its flexibility and robustness. Pretty sure your will find something useful in this post. Enjoy!

  • Skitter Skitter jQuery PLuginA highly configurable image slider with a lot of animation transitions, loading from html or xml and so many features that I think it will meet most people's needs.
  • Awkward Showcase Awkward Showcase jQuery PLuginAwkward Showcase is a plugin for the JavaScript Framework jQuery. We call it a Content Slider. But it can do more then just slide the content. For example you can add tooltips, enable thumbnails, activate dynamic height and lots more.
  • Photoswipe PhotoswipeImage gallery for mobile and touch devices - iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry 6 and Desktop all supported.
  • jqFancyTransitions jqfancytransitionsjqFancyTransitions is easy-to-use jQuery plugin for displaying your photos as slideshow with fancy transition effects.
  • jQuery Slider2 jQuery Slider2A small and lightweight jQuery-plugin to create simple inline slideshow. You can add text in it!

I also suggest this slider: http://www.gleenk.com/2011/jquery-news-spot-slider/. Not a real plugin but really easy and useful script.

unfortunately, jQuery Image Gallery comes with less than 0 documentation, where the images come from

this gallery is only for FLICKR ;=) I need such a gallery for local images
