View Full Version : Scrolling thumbnail gallery

Does anyone know how you would create a thumbnail gallery like the one "pictured" here?
I say pictured, because it's from a Business Week article on website makeovers. It was never implemented. Clicking any features on the image will close it.

There's about three major options to make a thumbnail image gallery.
1) Design your layout, make your thumbnails and start html'in the pages for each image and each browseable section.
2) Try and find a good perl or php script to help you create a gallery. By using one of these you'll spend a few hundred dollars but only have to make the layout once and magazing your images will be easy.
3) Try a service like ImageHarbor (listed in my link). Just like in option #2, you'll have lots of cool features, less work and therefore more free time. The major down side to services being of course that you don't truly control the site, the url or anything like that but if you like free?

Thanks for your response, Ted. I was most interested in the SCROLLING aspect of the gallery, which I think is done with DHTML.
Would that be difficult to implement?

I feel like a fool... when I saw the screenshot it didn't do anything so I misse dyour point, sorry.
As for making it scroll, dhtml will do what you need. To find a similar script try www.dhtmlzone.com (http://www.dhtmlzone.com)

You could do it with just an iframe tag, and just use CSS on the scroll bars like at www.arcadeathome.com (http://www.arcadeathome.com) . His are still 3d but you can make them look completely flat and 2d like at the page you listed. This way you don't have to learn DHTML which seemed pretty hard last time I had a look at any. The only downfall is that it requires a 4.x browser.
Hmm, after looking again ( the first time I looked was yesterday ), I guess the only way you could make it look exactly like that is with DHTML, afaik.

First chartered on June 30, 1930 by the Pleasant Valley PTA our troop now meets at St James Catholic Church in Liberty Missouri.
Jim, what are the odds? I lived in Pleasant Valley until I was 11 (1973).

In fact, I think I went to school with these two Eagle Scouts from 1976:
