Today we will show you a nice effect for images with jQuery. The idea is to have a set of rotated thumbnails that, once clicked, animate to form the selected image. You can navigate through the images with previous and next buttons and when the big image gets clicked it will scatter into the little box shaped thumbnails again.

When the window gets resized, the positions of the thumbnails will automatically adapt to fit the screen. We are using the jQuery 2D Transform plugin for the animated rotation. You can find the plugin here: http://plugins.jquery.com/project/2d-transform

The beautiful photographs are by tibchris and you can find his stunning works on his Flickr page:

When navigating through the full images, we will reveal the next or previous image by removing the current image box by box.

Have fun with the demo and download the ZIP to experiment with this cool effect!
The whole animation looks best in Google Chrome and Apple Safari.

    Hi is it possible to alter the code that the effect starts with the single image and from there you can click the controls and have other images come in box by box? I’m trying to edit it that i get rid of the initial boxes that come unto the screen and just have the one single image change as i click through.

    Thanks :)
