Balanced Gallery is a small jQuery plugin for responsive grid layout-like image gallery that evenly distributes photos across rows or columns, making the most of the space provided.

How to use it:

1. Include jQuery library and jQuery Balanced Gallery Plugin on your web page

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.balanced-gallery.js"></script>

2. Insert a group of images

<img src="1.jpg" alt="" />
<img src="2.jpg" alt="" />
<img src="3.jpg" alt="" />
...

3. Call the plugin

<script type="text/javascript">
$(window).load(function () {
$('body').BalancedGallery();
});
</script>

4. Options

<script type="text/javascript">
$(window).load(function () {
$('body').BalancedGallery({
autoResize: true,       // re-partition and resize the images when the window size changes
background: null,       // the css properties of the gallery's containing element
idealHeight: null,      // ideal row height, only used for horizontal galleries, defaults to half the containing element's height
idealWidth: null,       // ideal column width, only used for vertical galleries, defaults to 1/4 of the containing element's width
maintainOrder: true,    // keeps images in their original order, setting to 'false' can create a slightly better balance between rows
orientation: 'horizontal',          // 'horizontal' galleries are made of rows and scroll vertically; 'vertical' galleries are made of columns and scroll horizontally
padding: 5, // pixels between images
shuffleUnorderedPartitions: true,   // unordered galleries tend to clump larger images at the begining, this solves that issue at a slight performance cost
viewportHeight: null,   // the assumed height of the gallery, defaults to the containing element's height
viewportWidth: null     // the assumed width of the gallery, defaults to the containing element's width
});
});
</script>
