Here’s a list of 42 jQuery image galleries, sliders, plugins and tutorials built using jQuery:
1. TN3 Gallery
TN3 Gallery is a full fledged HTML based customizable image gallery with slideshow, transitions and multiple album options. Compatible with all modern desktop and mobile browsers. Powered by jQuery.
2. AD Gallery
I got inspired by myself when I wrote the Editable Select plugin, so I decided to write another one. It’s a gallery plugin that’s a bit different than plugins like Thickbox and Lightbox.
3. jQuery Cycle Plugin
The jQuery Cycle Plugin is a lightweight slideshow plugin. Its implementation is based on the InnerFade Plugin by Torsten Baldes, the Slideshow Plugin by Matt Oakes, and the jqShuffle Plugin by Benjamin Sterling. It supports pause-on-hover, auto-stop, auto-fit, before/after callbacks, click triggers and many transition effects. It also supports, but does not require, the Metadata Plugin and the Easing Plugin
Pikachoose is a lightweight Jquery plugin that allows easy presentation of photos with options for slideshows, navigation buttons, and auto play. Pikachoose is designed to be easily installed, easy to setup, and well… all around easy.
The s3Slider jQuery plugin is made by example of jd’s smooth slide show script. I needed something like that for jQuery (for my web site kruskica.net). Since i didnt find it after a small research i decided to build it by my self.
Popeye generates an inline image gallery from an unordered list of images. The gallery features clever inline image enlargement, i.e. the enlarged image stretches out over the site content without adding a visual overlay of the whole site. It stays fixed with one edge to its original coordinates, so that a sense of cohesiveness is created in the user interface and interaction.
8. Easy Slider
Easy Slider enables images or any content to slide horizontally or vertically on click. It is configurable with css alone. So, basically you link to plugin file, set the content up and style it with css.

9. Galleriffic jQuery Plugin
Galleriffic was inspired by Mike Alsup’s Cycle plugin, but with performance in mind for delivering a high volume of photos. This is my first experiment with jQuery, so I would love feedback on how to improve this plugin. I am not so great at spelling, and it was much later that I realized that the more appropriate spellings would be Gallerific or Gallerrific, but is too late now for a name change, so Galleriffic remains.

19. Fancy Thumbnail Hover Effect with jQuery

20. Sliding Image Gallery
The idea behind this plug-in is to display a varying number of images in an attractive and easy to use manner. The inspiration for this plug-in this iTunes album viewer. The SlidingGallery plug-in will take a group of images and turn them into a cyclical gallery of images which the user can click through.
22. GalleryView jQuery Plugin

24. Full Screen Image Gallery Using jQuery and Flickr
I just finished off a small project I have been working on for a while on my free time. It’s a full screen image gallery that automatically scales the image with kept aspect ratio to fill the browser background. I also spiced it up with a flickr search engine, thumbnails, captions, preloader and some other goodies.
25. jQuery lightBox plugin
jQuery lightBox plugin is simple, elegant, unobtrusive, no need extra markup and is used to overlay images on the current page through the power and flexibility of jQuery´s selector.
26. Simple Controls Image Gallery
Simple Controls Gallery rotates and displays an image by fading it into view over the previous one, with navigation controls that pop up when the mouse rolls over the Gallery.
27. Smooth Div Scroll
Smooth Div Scroll is a jQuery plugin that scrolls content horizontally left or right. Apart from many of the other scrolling plugins that have been written for jQuery, Smooth Div Scroll does not limit the scrolling to distinct steps. As the name of the plugin hints, scrolling is smooth.
So, what exactly does Supersized do?
Resizes images to fill browser while maintaining image dimension ratio;
Cycles Images/backgrounds via slideshow with transitions and preloading;
Navigation controls allow for pause/play and forward/back;

jCarousel Lite is a jQuery plugin that carries you on a carousel ride filled with images and HTML content. Put simply, you can navigate images and/or HTML in a carousel-style widget. It is super light weight, at about 2 KB in size, yet very flexible and customizable to fit most of our needs.
33. jQuery Image Strip
