Beyond Traditional Image Showcase with jQuery
If you run a portfolio or photography website, you’re probably tired of traditional vertical, horizontal or grid layout of showcasing images. From a usability perspective these approaches are perfect but with a personal or entertainment website you can be more unconventional and experiment with different styles. Addy Osmani, a UK-based Web developer came up with some great ways of showcasing images in a circle, ellipse and stack fashion.
His new jQuery plugin Roundrr transforms list-based images in an interactive wheel-based gallery with keyboard navigation support. The Flash-like effects are smooth, sleek and functional with image caption and image enlargement support.
