Basic jQuery Gallery with Paginated Thumbnail Navigation - ImageGallery.js

ImageGallery.js is a small, easy-to-use jQuery gallery plugin which allows the visitor to fade through a series of images with a paginatable thumbnail image navigation.

Basic usage:

1. Build the markup structure for the gallery.

<div id="gallery-wrapper">

  <!-- gallery viewer -->
  <div id="viewer-wrapper">
    <div id="gallery-viewer"> 
      <img alt="Placeholder" src="images/placeholder.png"> 
  <!-- navigation -->
  <div id="viewer-nav"> 
    <a id="gallery-viewer-next" href="#">next</a> 
    <a id="gallery-viewer-prev" href="#">previous</a> 
  <!-- thumbnail navigation -->
  <div id="thumbs-nav"> 
    <a id="gallery-next" href="#">next</a>
    <a id="gallery-prev" href="#">previous</a>
    <p id="gallery-pos">page 1 of 2</p>

  <!-- thumbnail images -->
  <div id="thumbs-wrapper">
    <div id="gallery">
      <div class="thumbnail"> 
        <img alt="Wasteland" src="gallery/thumbs/1.jpg"> 
      <div class="thumbnail"> 
        <img alt="Woods" src="gallery/thumbs/2.jpg"> 
      <div class="thumbnail"> 
        <img alt="Tree Path" src="gallery/thumbs/3.jpg"> 

2. The core CSS styles for the gallery.

#thumbs-wrapper, #viewer-wrapper, #setup-wrapper { padding: 15px; }

#thumbs-wrapper, #viewer-wrapper, #setup-wrapper, #viewer-nav, #thumbs-nav { background-color: rgba(0,0,0,0.2); }

#viewer-wrapper { height: 348px; }

#gallery-viewer { height: 100%; }

#gallery-viewer img {
  max-width: 100%;
  max-height: 100%;

#viewer-nav, #thumbs-nav { height: 30px; }

#viewer-nav { margin-top: 2px; }

#thumbs-nav {
  margin-top: 10px;
  margin-bottom: 2px;

#thumbs-nav p {
  width: 50%;
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0 auto;
  line-height: 30px;

#gallery-next, #gallery-viewer-next, #gallery-prev, #gallery-viewer-prev {
  text-indent: -9999px;
  margin: 6.5px 25px;
  height: 17px;
  width: 16px;
  background-image: url('../images/spt_arrows.png');
  background-repeat: no-repeat;

#gallery-next, #gallery-viewer-next {
  background-position: -16px 0;
  float: right;

#gallery-prev, #gallery-viewer-prev { float: left; }

.thumbnail {
  float: left;
  width: 140px;
  height: 138px;

3. Put jQuery library, jQuery imageLoaded plugin and the jQuery ImageGallery.js plugin at the bottom of your html page.

<script src="//"></script> 
<script src="js/jquery.imagesloaded.min.js"></script> 
<script src="js/jquery.ImageGallery.js"></script> 

4. Initialize the gallery with default settings.


5. All default plugin settings.


  // the number of rows of the thumbnail navigation
  'rows': 1,

  // the number of columns of the thumbnail navigation
  'cols': 5,

  // animation duration
  duration: 400,

  // easing effect
  easing: 'swing'
