Automatic Image Montage with jQuery

In Playground

Arranging images in a montage like fashion can be a challenging task when considering certain constraints, like the window size when using fullscreen, the right image number to fill all the available space or also the size of the images in use. With the following script you can automatically create a montage, either for a liquid container or a fixed size container (including fullscreen), with the option to fill all the gaps.

Image Zoom Tour with jQuery

In Playground

Today we want to share a little zoom tour script with you. Showing a main image initially, we want to be able to zoom into certain parts of the image by clicking on tags, using another image for the closer view. This next step can contain other tags that again allow to show more images. We achieve the “zoom” effect by enlarging the current image and fading in the new one.

Circular Content Carousel with jQuery

In Playground

Today we want to share a simple circular content carousel with you. The idea is to have some content boxes that we can slide infinitely (circular). When clicking on the “more” link, the respective item moves to the left and a content area will slide out. Now we can navigate through the carousel where each step will reveal the next or previous content box with its expanded content. Clicking on the closing cross will slide the expanded content area back in and animate the item to its original position.

Expanding Fullscreen Grid Portfolio

In Playground

Clicking to view more, we expand the according item to fullscreen in order to show a longer description of the item and a representative fullscreen background image.

Content Rotator with jQuery

In Playground

Hiding the thumbnails will reveal a scrollable text container and the navigation arrows will move up so that one can navigate to the previous or next slides.

Vertical Sliding Accordion with jQuery

In Playground

Today we want to share a slick and flexible vertical jQuery accordion with you. The main idea is to expand the accordion slices on click and show some more information.

Once a slice is open and we navigate, the subsequent slice will open on slide.
